Weather Policy

Our policy is to close our tax sites, if there is a Level 2 Snow Emergency. If you’re planning to file your taxes or scheduled to volunteer and you’re unsure whether you should head to your tax site, either check with your local radio or TV station to find out what the current level is or contact 2-1-1.Listed below are the definitions of each level (as defined by the State of Ohio).

  • LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.
  • LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads can be very icy. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. People should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Obviously, if you are driving, use extreme caution.
  • LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during this condition unless it is absolutely necessary or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they report for work. Anyone traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

SITE COORDINATORS: If your site is closed due to weather or any other situation, call 2-1-1 to notify them of the situation.
