LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Emergency management says Lexington will be using its emergency notification system to ask some residents to move their vehicles to off-street parking lots and parking areas. It says the calls will focus on people who live on snow emergency routes.
“Snow emergency routes are marked by street signs along major arteries within the city of Lexington,” said Pat Dugger, Director of the Division of Emergency Management. “The system that we’re using allows us to target those persons with landline phone numbers along those key streets. They’ll get a telephone call asking them to move their cars to off street parking.”
According to the city, the calls will be identified as coming from the City of Lexington Department of Public Safety. Meanwhile, the Division of Streets and Roads asked all residents Thursday afternoon to move their cars off streets where possible. The city says residents can park free in any of the downtown city-owned parking garages from 6pm Thursday until Sunday at noon. That includes Helix, Transit Center, Courthouse and Victorian Square Garages.
