Fulton - Russ Johnson, Chairman of the Oswego County Legislature, has rescinded a State of Emergency in Oswego County that was declared Jan. 29, 2004 due to the extreme snowstorm occurring within the county.

The State of Emergency was lifted at 11:30 a.m. this morning (Feb. 3, 2004). During the emergency, Oswego County requested assistance from New York State, and State Department of Transportation resources were deployed to help county, city and local departments of public works.

Legislature Chairman Johnson reminded people in Oswego County that there's still a great deal of snow along the roadsides, and urged them to use caution while traveling.

The declaration was issued in accordance with New York State Executive Law Article 2-B to protect lives and property, and opened the door for the chairman of the legislature to request aid from other municipalities.
