Yorktown and Peekskill officials are urging residents to stay off the roadways until the snowstorm ends Saturday.

Yorktown Supervisor Michael Grace declared a snow emergency, starting at 3 p.m. Friday and remaining in effect until Saturday at 6 p.m.

During the snow emergency, all vehicles traveling on town roads must have either four-wheel drive, snow tires or tire chains. There is also no parking allowed on roadways. Any vehicle parked on a roadway may receive a summons and towed at the owner’s expense.

Meanwhile, in neighboring Peekskill, Mayor Mary Foster said a parking ban is in effect on city streets and vehicles in violation will be towed.

The Lincoln Parade and dinner scheduled for Saturday has also been postponed.
