Parking bans and plows

A reminder that town winter parking bans are in effect. Parking is not allowed on any street between midnight and 6 a.m. through April 15. Violators will be towed at their own expense.

The town advises that residents with driveways shovel snow in the direction of traffic and make a pocket next to the driveway. Plows going by will drop their snow into that pocket with the intent of depositing only a bare minimum into the driveway opening.

If your mailbox or mailbox post is damaged by a town plow, contact the Public Works office.

For more information about the parking ban, proper driveway clearing and mailbox replacement, call 657-3339 or go to

Here’s what the town suggests as the best way to shovel your driveway so that road plows plows don’t fill the end of it with snow.
