The Public Service Department announced this morning (Thursday, Jan 7) that the no parking ban that had been in effect to allow the snow plows full access to the streets has been lifted. That’s good news on two fronts: 1) if you’re a street parker you can park on the street again; and 2)it means city crews have restored streets to safe driving conditions. The bad news is another front is coming our way and the forecast is calling for more accumulation so sharpen your shovel and keep your galoshes ready for another round.
Here’s todays official notice from the Public Service Director:
