As a rule we prefer not to issue parking bans. Unfortunately, there are times when we must do so in order to clean the roads of snow and ice in an efficient manner.
If a ban is put into effect, you will see the start and end time on our web site, our Facebook and Twitter pages, our public access station TV-7 and, if you have signed up for E-Households or Cell Households, in your email and on your cell phone.
Our parking bans are also shown on local TV stations WCSH-6, WMTW-8 and WGME-13, and on radio stations WGAN (560 AM), WMGX (93.1 FM), WPOR (101.9 FM), and WYNZ (100.9 FM).
After a parking ban has been issued, if your vehicle is parked in the way of hampering snow plowing or removal, you run the risk of it being hit by the plow truck and/or the Police Department having to tow it away.
