State of Emergency declared for the City of Batavia, travel ban in effect
The National Weather Service is predicting that a large band of lake effect snow that also already dumped several feet of snow on Alabama and Oakfield is going to move south into the Center of Genesee County, including the City of Batavia.
In response, City Manager Rachael Tabelski has declared a state of emergency for the city.
The Local State of Emergency has been declared due to hazardous weather conditions, high winds, and increasing snowfall accumulation. This order also includes a travel ban on all City of Batavia Streets and a parking ban across the city.
The order is in effect for five days or until it is lifted by the City Manager.
It is a Class B misdemeanor to disobey the order.
