Snow emergency parking rules

The Select Board on Oct. 26 voted to supsend the town’s all-night parking ban and to implement in its place a snow emergency response to snow events on an “as needed” basis.

Declared snow emergencies will prohibit on-street parking starting at midnight the day of the anticipated snow storm.  On-street parking will be allowed the following morning starting at 7 a.m. during a declared snow emergency.  If the duration of any snow emergency is more than a day, on-street parking will be prohibited on each day of the snow emergency from midnight to 7 a.m.

Any vehicles that violate the provisions of this motion are subject to the issuance of parking tickets and towing. Notification of a declared snow emergency shall be done through the town website, CodeRED automated call system, Town-managed social media accounts, MHTV, and any other outlets the town has available.

The vote is revocable upon the determination of the police chief, fire chief, town administrator, Department of Public Works, or their designees, that it is negatively impacting public health and safety.
