What does the Town do with snow Downtown?

Downtown has its own plow route. Plow drivers will clear a lane in each direction, with snow pushed to the middle. If a significant storm occurs, trucks and a snow blower will haul away snow. More often, plow drivers will slush out the snow, moving it back and forth across the road to help it melt. It is recommended that businesses choose one parking stall on each block to pile snow into, so the rest remain available for use.

From Dec. 1 through March 31, there will be no parking on portions of Third and Fourth streets from midnight and 7 a.m. Signs have been placed marking these areas so plows can clear snow in hard-to-clear sections.
