Lewisburg Borough Market Street and Metered Parking Spaces Snow Removal

Lewisburg Borough Public Works staff will undertake snow removal from Market Street and the Metered Parking Spaces on Second Street, Third Street, Fourth Street, Fifth Street, and Sixth Street beginning Thursday, February 4, 2021 at 12:01 am.  All vehicles should be removed from Market Street and these Metered Parking Spaces by this time.  The BVRPD will ticket and tow all vehicles remaining.  Please note that no vehicles should park along Market Street until at least 7:00 am on Thursday morning and no vehicles should park in the side street metered spaces until the “No Parking” bags have been removed.  Due to the amount of snow received, multiple passes with the snowblower may be necessary.  As such, please don’t park in the metered spaces until Borough staff or the BVRPD remove the “No Parking” bags.  Illegal parking in these spaces will result in ticketing and towing.  We anticipate that snow removal activities will continue for most of the day on Thursday.
