Mayor Bryan Barnett has issued a declaration declaring Rochester Hills to be in a winter weather emergency. The declaration took effect two hours after the mayor made the announcement earlier today and will remain in effect until the mayor removes it. You can read the entire declaration at the city’s civil alert emergency website:

Although Rochester Community Schools has not officially closed schools for Monday as of this writing Avondale Schools, which serves the southern part of Rochester Hills, has closed for tomorrow according to reports by WXYZ-TV, WDIV and Fox 2.

According to section 98-109 of the municipal code it is illegal to leave a car parked in a public street or the shoulder of a public street. This would include the wings at some intersection designed to allow wide or long vehicles to make turns.

Under the code any vehicle parked in violation of the code may be ticketed by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department and towed. To recover a vehicle the owner must pay for the tow, storage, fine for the civil infraction and any other fees that might be associated with the towing or the vehicle.
