Stamford Director of Operations Ernie Orgera announced Wednesday morning that Mayor David Martin's snow emergency declaration would end at 6 p.m. the evening of Wednesday, January 22, 2014.

Because of the declaration, it pushes the schedule for garbage and recycling pickup back one day of the week. Those who would normally have trash picked up Wednesday should put it out Thursday, and so on.

All vehicles should remain off emergency snow routes until 6 p.m. Routes are marked by red and white signage, but included below is a list compiled yesterday of all snow routes in the city. Vehicles parked along these routes risk being ticketed or towed at the owner's expense while snow removal continues.

Orgera reminded residents of the following in his announcement of the snow emergency being rescinded:

"City Ordinances mandate the removal of snow and ice on sidewalks in front of homes and businesses within twelve (12) hours of the ceasing of such snow fall or freezing; or if such fall or freezing is in the nighttime, before 10:00 a.m. of the succeeding day so that such sidewalk shall be safe for public travel,

"For safety, snow and ice is mandated to be removed from passenger cars, trucks and commercial vehicles because of the dangers of ice missiles."
