As we enter the winter weather season, please note the Town enforces standard parking restrictions during winter weather events. Please do not park your vehicle on roadways during storms and for a period of time following the end of the storm.
Adherence to this regulation allows our plows to remove snow and ice properly, effectively apply salt treatment to the roadways and allows officers to respond to other matters. Vehicles parked in the roadway can create dangerous conditions, further narrow clearance in the road and cause problems for neighbors. Thank you for your cooperation. Please see the excerpt from the Town Code below:
“No person shall park or leave unattended any vehicle on the pavement or shoulder of any Town highway, road or street during a period of snowfall, sleet, freezing rain or other winter-type weather and for a forty-eight-hour period after the precipitation ceases.”
