Winter Operations


Parking is prohibited on any public way between 12:00 midnight and 6:00 a.m. from December 1st to April 15th of the following year.

During a snowstorm, cleaning main roadways are a main priority. All equipment operators are using dump trucks to keep the street clear. Depending on the length and severity of the storm, crew members may need to go home and rest for safety reasons. After the crew has time to rest, they will come in to treat sidewalks and continue snow removal. 

Exception: In the event that a snow emergency is declared by the Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, or his/her designated representative, based upon a recommendation of the Highway Superintendent or his/her representative, then parking on any public way will be prohibited for the time or period indicated in the declaration. The emergency declaration can be for the Town as a whole, or a portion thereof, depending upon the needs of the Highway Superintendent. Any vehicle found in violation of this section, by either the Highway or Police Departments, may be removed by the Chief of Police or one of his/her authorized officers. Any towing or garage expense shall be paid by the owner of any vehicle so removed.

Our Public Works crew always takes care when performing winter operations not to damage private property placed within the public way. If a piece of private property placed within the public way is damaged during winter operations the Town will address the incident on a case by case basis.
