Winter Parking Ban

November 1 to April 1, inclusive
Reference General Bylaws, Chapter 112 § 20
 
Annually, on November 30th, the Town's Winter Parking Ban goes into effect and continues through April 1st. This ban prohibits parking of motor vehicles on any public way between the hours of 11pm and 7am during these months. This parking Ban allows the highway Department to plow and open roads in a more efficient and timely manner.
 
Illegally parked vehicles are the biggest obstacle to effectively removing snow from the roadway. Vehicles that violate the winter parking ban will be ticketed by the Police and carry a $15.00 fine. Vehicles that directly hamper Highway Department snow removal efforts will be ticketed and towed at the owner's expense. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
 
Questions regarding parking restrictions should be referred to either the Townsend Police Department or Townsend Highway Department. You may contact the Highway Department Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:00am and 3:30pm.
