Scooping snow

Randy Hoffman of 1015 15th Ave. scoops open a 300-foot stretch of sidewalk today on the south side of 11th Street in southwest Kearney. Hoffman said he plowed open his driveway twice during the Sunday storm, which dumped up to 11 inches of snow in the Kearney area. He was scooping the sidewalk by hand because the drifted snow was too firmly packed for his plow.

KEARNEY — The city of Kearney Street Division has declared a snow emergency that remains in effect until 10 p.m. today.

The declaration began Sunday and bans parking on any of the city’s emergency snow routes so that snow removal can continue without interference because of parked or abandoned vehicles.

Owners of vehicles parked or stuck on an emergency snow route could face fines and fees of up to $244 if their vehicle is towed.
