Providence mayor says city prepped for snowfall

Posted: Updated:
PROVIDENCE -

Providence's mayor says the public works department stands ready to respond to this weekend's snowstorm, which could bring up to six inches of accumulation.

Mayor Angel Taveras is also urging residents to prepare for the storm. He says the snowfall is expected to begin in the late afternoon Saturday and be heaviest overnight. Between 3 and 6 inches are expected before the precipitation changes over to sleet and rain early Sunday.

The mayor's office says property owners are required to remove snow and ice from sidewalks and around fire hydrants and pedestrian ramps adjacent to their property within eight hours after the snowfall stops. It's not allowed to shovel snow onto plowed roadways.

Snow-related violations carry fines ranging from $20 to $500.
