The Department wishes to remind residents of the snow ordinance regarding parking and the placement of snow on the streets. The Winter Parking Ban is in effect from November 1 to April 1. During that time, no person shall park any motor vehicle on any public road or right-of-way between 12:00 midnight and 8:00 A.M., or at any other time as to impede snow removal operations.
Any vehicle parked in violation will be towed by the Police Department. Any vehicles so towed shall be stored and released to the owner only upon payment of the cost of towing. No person is allowed to place any snow or ice upon the surface of the traveled portion of any Town maintained portion of road or highway. Blowing, shoveling, or plowing snow into the street, creates a very dangerous situation that can cause swerving and accidents.
Any person violating this ordinance may be subject to a penalty as specified in Town’s Snow Ordinance. Generally, the Town has a 50-foot right-of-way, which extends 13 feet from the edge of the pavement. Residents are asked not to reconstruct road shoulders and swales or place any structures and landscape items within the Town Right-of-Way. Stakes, delineators, or rocks create a road hazard and should be removed. The Town is not liable for damages that may occur to objects placed within its right-of-way.
