 Mayor Williams Closes City of Wilmington
Due to  Anticipated Additional Snowfall
Driving ban remains in effect 

 

Mayor Dennis P. Williams announces the City of Wilmington will be closed Friday, February 14, 2014 due to inclement weather and additional anticipated snowfall that is expected to begin this evening. Essential personnel must still report for duty. All the Department of Parks and Recreation facilities, activities and programs are cancelled. 

With the anticipation of additional snowfall, the City will remain closed in order to keep citizens safe and reduce the number of motorists on the roadways. This will also allow various City departments to continue plowing and salting secondary streets in the neighborhoods and communities within the City. The driving ban in the City of Wilmington still remains in effect. 

"The safety of the citizens is my top priority. We must take all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone is safe," said Mayor Williams. 

Motorists are advised to adjust travel plans accordingly, as driving conditions will rapidly deteriorate and become hazardous as snow falls.

The winter storm warning remains until 6:00am. The National Weather Service in Mount Holly anticipates snow accumulations of an additional 1 to 2 inches.
