UPDATE: The Science Show and Ice Cream Social at Rye Recreation has been cancelled for today.

UPDATE: Rye City reminds residents and business owners, when clearing driveways/sidewalks, please do not push snow into the street; it impedes clearing and is dangerous. Snow removal contractors and residents are reminded: please do not push snow into the street. Doing so impedes road clearing efforts, and also is dangerous -- mounds of snow on cleared streets create a hazard for moving vehicles.

UPDATE 12:03 PM- REMINDER:  Rye City Code requires sidewalks to be cleared within 24 hours of the end of snowfall.

Residents and property owners are reminded that sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours of the end of snowfall. Please assist in maintaining safe walkways for pedestrian passage. The text of Section 167-47 of the City Code is included below:

weather conditions permit safe operations.
