Mayor Jim Newberry has declared a Stage 1 snow emergency in Lexington. It took effect at 6 p.m. Monday.
That means anyone who has a vehicle parked on a snow emergency route must move it by 10 p.m. or face possible towing.
Roads on the snow emergency route are marked with signs.
"Snow has started to accumulate on the sides of our roads, and more snow is expected tonight," Newberry said in a statement. "We need to be able to plow snow routes, and that requires that parked vehicles be moved."
In addition to towing costs, people who do not move their vehicles could face a fine of $10 to $50. For information about how to retrieve a towed vehicle, call the Police Reports Desk at (859) 258-3563.
