NEWBURGH - Tensions are rising in Newburgh, where residents say snow removal has left city streets a nightmare for weeks. Meanwhile, their cars are being ticketed and towed during an ongoing snow emergency.

The snow emergency has been in effect for nearly two weeks to help crews clean streets narrowed by mounting snow banks. But, it also means special street parking rules are enforced.

Hundreds of tickets have been issued and cars have been towed, in some cases totaling hundreds of dollars.

Both residents and city officials agree that the streets are a mess and still need to be cleaned. Drivers are urged to check with the city to find out where to park.

The snow emergency remains in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday night.
