BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. - With as much as a foot of snow expected to hit the region, officials in Briarcliff Manor have declared a snow emergency that will be effective as of midnight on Monday.
According to the New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the state is anticipating that between 16 and 20 inches of snow may fall in the lower Hudson Valley, with more than a foot coming to upstate New York. State police have cautioned that the storm may impact the region until Wednesday night, causing a combination of low visibility and slippery roadways, creating “treacherous travel conditions.”
During the snow emergency, Village Manager Philip Zegarelli noted that there is no overnight parking at the Scarborough Railroad Station, and cars will be subject to late night towing at the owner’s expense. There will be a plow driver dedicated to the station beginning in the morning. Early morning commuters should park in the slots facing the northbound tracks. Valet parking areas are to be avoided.
The Briarcliff Manor Library and WJV Community Center will be closed until Wednesday. Village Hall is expected to be open to address immediate needs in the area with a limited staff. The Planning Board Hearing and Meeting that was scheduled has been moved to Tuesday, April 4. Garbage pickup has been pushed to Wednesday and recycling will be picked up on Thursday.
