Public Hearings
Road ConstructionWhen the City is aware of road closures, major repairs, emergency repairs, etc.
Snow EmergencyWhen the City of Rochester declares a snow emergency, all vehicles on residential streets should be moved from the street into driveways or gargages. Vehicles that remain on the street are subject to being ticketed and/or towed. Vehicles are to remain off the street until plow trucks have gone through the area and the street has been cleared of snow and/or ice from curb to curb for the length of the entire block following the current snowfall. The snow emergency will be lifted by the City once the emergency has passed. Having vehicles off the street makes for a faster and cleaner job of snow plowing and allows for emergency vehicles (police and fire) to get to locations easier. Thank you for doing your part to help out!
Technical Difficulties - TV BroadcastingFrom time to time, the City experiences technical difficulties with broadcasting meetings LIVE via cable providers and over the Internet.
Water IssueThere could be a water related issue in Rochester or a nearby community. The issue will be identified and additional information provided.
