WINTER PARKING BAN
Watertown Chief of Police Edward P. Deveau has announced the 2013-2014 Winter Parking Ban dates.
Effective midnight December 2, 2013, and continuing to April 1, 2014, the Winter Parking Ban will be in effect and strictly enforced. The regulation reads in part; “No vehicle may remain on any public way for more than one hour between the hours of 1AM and 6AM all days of the week”.
For residents who lack sufficient off street parking, the town allows for temporary parking at any municipal parking lot and other locations noted:
- The police station at 552 Main Street
- Any public school parking lot
- Marion Road at Victory Field
- The lot at Boylston Street and Mt Auburn Streets
Please note that these locations may be used free of charge, however all vehicles may use available spaces after 7PM and must be moved/removed by 7AM the following day. Vehicles must be removed from any school property no later than 6AM during any snow storm to allow for plowing. Violators may be towed.
Please remember that parking your vehicle upon any sidewalk is prohibited. Your cooperation in keeping the streets clear of overnight parking and your sidewalks clear of snow and ice will make for safer driving/walking conditions and at the same time, allow the opportunity for the Public Works Department to perform necessary street cleaning and maintenance.
Please remember to remove your vehicle from the public way Sunday night December 1st, so that you will not receive a ticket Monday morning December 2nd.
