Dear residents,

We have declared a Snow Emergency in the Town of Lapel from Tuesday, 1st of February to Friday, 4th of February 2022.

  • If you live on a North/South street and usually park in the street please park on the West side of the street.
  • If you live on an East/West street please park on the South side of the street.
  • Unsure whether you live on a North/South/East or West orientated street? Visit Google Maps

This should ensure the plows have sufficient room to clear snow from the street.

During a Snow Emergency we also ask that no one park on 7th street, Main street, and 9th street.

We thank you for your understanding.
