Snow Advisory Levels for Huron County

A few notes on the snow advisory levels:

1. Greenwich Police does not declare advisory levels. The levels are decided by the Huron County Sheriffs Office.
2. Advisory levels are issued for the purpose of making the citizens of Huron County aware of current roadway conditions.
3. Advisory levels are issued to caution those who drive to work so that they can plan accordingly to allow enough time for them to commute safely.
4. Advisory levels and the Huron County Sheriffs Office do not dictate whether you should report to work or not nor do they excuse you from work. This is a matter that is solely between you and your employer. 

During inclimate weather, always use caution when driving on the roadways. Slow down and allow extra time when traveling. We will keep you updated on weather conditions as they develop and will adjust advisory levels accordingly. Stay safe!

Snow Emergency Classifications

Pursuant of Ohio Attorney General Opinion 86-023, the sheriff of a county may declare a snow emergency and temporarily close county and township roads within his jurisdiction for the preservation of the public peace. Attorney General Opinion 97-015 allows the sheriff to close state and municipal roads.

Snow Emergency Classifications

LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.

LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be very icy. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.

LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

VOG – Electrical Customers – Annual Peak

Dear Village of Greenwich – Electrical Customers,

Help us reduce your Electrical Costs for 2020 with Community Energy Savings Day.

On Thursday morning January 31, 2019 from 7 am to 9 am there a very high certainty that it will be our provider’s (AEP’s) peak for 2019. Consuming the most electric.

Peaks occur during times when many people need electricity at once. These typically occur on cold winter mornings and hot summer afternoons. The “rush hours” affect the cost of power.

As a reminder, the amount of transmission demand that The Village of Greenwich will pay in 2020 is based on your load or usage at the time of AEP’s annual peak.

Since the peak is very certain, I am out sending out this  message to customers to ask for voluntary curtailments to help the town reduce power costs for next year.

I have included this video to help you understand how it works.

 You can help keep these costs stable by voluntarily shifting the time you use large appliances, like dishwashers and clothes dryers. You can also help and save money by adjusting your thermostat and your lighting. On Thursday morning January 31, 2019 from 7 am to 9 am, only use necessary Curtail Power.

 

Thank You, Virgil Giles (Village Administrator Village of Greenwich – State of Ohio)
