Cities Plan To Lift Snow Emergencies

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - The snow storm that came through over the weekend dumped between 10 and 17 inches in mid-Michigan. Multi-city wide efforts are now underway to get things back to "normal" functioning.

Jackson has issued a snow emergency for the city. The alert will last through Wednesday, January 8.

East Lansing says the snow emergency will be lifted at 5p.m. on Monday. Residents should still refrain from parking in the street and not travel as much as possible until roads can be cleared.

All City of East Lansing operations, with the exception of the Bailey Community Center, will re-open on Tuesday. This includes city hall, district court, the Hannah Community Center, Department of Public Works and the library will all be open. Schools will still be closed.

The City of Lansing is lifting only part of its snow emergency. Non-essential travel will be allowed again begining at 12:01a.m. Tuesday. City government offices and functions, as well as city sponsored events and meetings, will all resume normal business hours. On-street parking is still prohibited and all other provisions of the mayor's snow emergency declaration remain in effect.
