Winter Parking in Effect- Dec. 1st
Winter is coming! Please remember there is no parking on municipal roads between 2:00 am and 7:00 am starting Dec. 1st till March 31st. This is particularly important in the winter to allow for snow clearing.

Also, don't forget to bring in your basketball and hockey nets from the edge of the road and out of the way of snowplows. If you live on a rural road, check that your mailbox is securely attached to its post.
