The Selectmen have banned all on street parking from November 15th until May. Do not park on the street, you will be ticketed and towed during snow emergencies. There should not be other items in the roadway such as basketball poles or other recreational equipment as these are dangerous to the plow drivers.
We expect white out conditions over the next 48 hours, please remember drivers, particularly plow drivers, will have a difficult time seeing pedestrians. Please refrain from being on the roads (jogging, walking, etc) while the plows are working. Residents are reminded that it is illegal to plow, shovel, snowplow or otherwise move snow onto the public roadways. DPW workers regularly run into, literally, plow trails that create dangerous situations for them. It also makes it difficult to properly clear the roads when contractors and residents push snow into the road after DPW crews have finished. Please make sure you or your contractors are not leaving snow in the roadway, town bylaws allow for ticketing.
Finally, due to the extreme volume of snow expected, please make sure your car is not parked at the edge of the roadway, on your driveway. The plows will be pushing record amounts of snow and we do not want to damage your vehicle.
