The city of Red Wing has announced it will not declare a snow emergency over Christmas, even if there are heavy snowfalls Thursday and Friday as expected.
City officials said they decided in advance not to call a snow emergency because many residents will be out of town or will be hosting visitors who aren't familiar with Red Wing's snow emergency requirements. City streets will still be plowed if there's snowfall and city officials request that residents remove their vehicles from the streets if possible.
