A snow parking ban is activated to allow snowplow crews to clear the entire street including parking areas. For your safety, when approaching operating salt vehicles, stay at least 100 feet behind the equipment. It is inadvisable to pass salt or plow trucks," the town posted on Facebook.
Snow plowing operations began at about 5 p.m. Monday. Snow route parking bans are in affect. Crews will start with main routes outside of the downtown and then move into residential areas. Downtown will be done last. Crews may have to return to areas if needed.
