Albany declares snow emergency; Schenectady orders cars removed from 'priority' streets
ALBANY The City of Albany has declared a snow emergency that will begin at 8 tonight, at which time all normal parking rules and regulations will be temporarily suspended.
During the first 24 hours of the snow emergency, all vehicles must be parked on the even numbered side of the street.
Beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, all vehicles must be parked on the odd numbered side of the street for the next 24-hour period.
