With storm after storm, clearing the streets and harvesting the snow elsewhere has been a major undertaking. Thanks to the assistance of several out-of-state resources from Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland, city officials say the Newburyport Department of Public Service (DPS) crews and contractors have removed over 100,000 feet of snow from city streets over the past three weeks. That’s over 20 miles of snow. #GoVIP!
As with any well-oiled plan, mother nature or other unforeseen circumstances could change the these events. We will continue to provide updates on the snow removal and parking ban regularly.Until then it’s important to note this ban is being strictly enforced for our safety. Illegally parked cars will be ticketed and towed.
If at anytime you want to check in on the status of the parking ban, the “Blue Lights” will be turned on at the start of the ban. When they shut off, you’re in the clear.
