Snow Removal Operations will be underway on Elm Street and the adjacent side streets from 10:00 p.m. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 19th until 7:00 a.m. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20th. All Surrounding side streets involved will be marked with “No Parking” signs prior to snow removal.
THERE WILL BE NO PARKING IN THIS AREA DURING THIS TIME.
Vehicles parked on Elm Street and marked areas will be subject to towing and impounding. Vehicles that are impounded will be stored at the City’s Vehicle Impoundment Area, located in Derryfield Park off of Bridge Street. In order to recover an impounded vehicle, the owner will be required to present proof of ownership and make a payment of $110.00 in cash. This must be done within 24 hours of the time when the vehicle was towed. Vehicles not recovered within 24 hours will be subject to additional towing and storage charges.
Partial Parking Ban Imposed
Per City Ordinance 71.08 (B), the Public Works Director has determined that the snow has accumulated to a point that creates a hazard. Therefore a prohibition limiting parking to only the even numbered side of City streets will go into effect as of 8:00 A.M., Friday February 20, 2015 and will continue 24 hours per day until further notice.
If parking is presently allowed on only one side of the street, parking will be permitted on that side of the street.
Streets exempted from this parking ban are as follows:
- Elm Street
- Commercial Street
- Pine Street
- Chestnut Street
- Bedford Street
THE CURRENT ODD-EVEN PARKING RESTRICTION IS HEREBY RESCINDED AND WILL BE REPLACED BY THIS PROHIBITION.
In addition, there is no overnight parking permitted on the circular portions of dead-end cul-de-sacs. Those in violation of this ordinance will be subject to a $25.00 fine.
Upon declaration of a Snow Emergency, vehicles must be removed from both sides of all City streets. Snow Emergencies take effect from the time determined by the Director, typically 10:00 P.M. to 6:00 A.M. Earlier start times and later end times may be set during unusually heavy storms. Any vehicle parked in violation of a Snow Emergency Declaration will be removed and impounded.
