Select Board approves ‘as needed’ parking bans for snow

The Select Board has voted to implement an “as needed” parking ban during snow emergencies.

During a declared snow emergency, on-street parking will be prohibited starting at midnight the day of the expected storm through 7 a.m. If a snow emergency lasts more than one day, the parking ban will be in effect each night of the emergency.

Vehicles parked on streets in violation of the ban are subject to ticketing and towing. The town will notify residents of declared snow emergencies through its website, CodeRED phone alerts, social media, local cable TV and other available means.
