A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 6pm, Thursday, February 8 through 9pm on Friday, February 9. Please see full storm warning copied below for more details.
Travel may be hazardous this evening and early Friday morning. If you must travel, please allow extra time to reach your destination safely. People should limit or avoid time outdoors, particularly children and the elderly, who are more at-risk for cold injuries.
Road maintenance crews will continue to plow and treat roads as possible. The Village of Antioch Public Works Department will begin with major arterial roads, then collector streets, side streets, and finally cul-de-sacs. With a storm of this size, please understand that crews are working around the clock to ensure roads are safe for travel, and do their best to keep up with the storm.
Do not park your vehicles on or sticking out into the roadway. Vehicles parked on the street interfering with snow removal operations will be ticketed or towed.
For safety purposes, keep children away from the road and do not let them build tunnels or caves in the snow along roadways. Tunnels or caves are not stable and may collapse on children causing sever injury or suffocation.
Residents who are able are encouraged to keep the area by fire hydrants clear of snow. If possible, please clear the area near your mailbox, and check on your neighbors and assist with their snow removal when necessary.
