Snow removal reminders
Following a heavy snowfall, Town crews work around-the-clock to clear the snow from the roads and sidewalks. The Town installs signs prohibiting the parking of any vehicle on specific streets until snow operations have ended. Please respect all signage to avoid infractions.
Sidewalk snow plows need the entire width of the sidewalk in order to safely clean it. When snow is expected, please park your car at least 6 inches (15 cm) from the curb. This allows for safe passage of the sidewalk plows.
