Parking Ban Will Continue to be in Effect through Tuesday, December 3.
The Newburyport Department of Public Services (DPS) declared a Street Parking Ban effective at 6PM on Sunday, December 1, 2019. With snow in the forecast into the afternoon tomorrow, December 3rd, the ban will remain in effect until further notice. The flashing blue emergency beacons will remain on during the parking ban.
During a Parking Ban, all parking is prohibited on all public ways. Any vehicle parked on a public way is subject to ticketing and/or towing at the owner’s expense. The City’s towing priorities are based on access needs for emergency vehicles (Fire, Police, Ambulance), along with the type and duration of the event. Residents may park (free of charge) in city-controlled municipal surface lots until the ban has been rescinded. Owners of vehicles parked in the municipal lots must remove their cars within 12 hours after the parking ban is lifted so the DPS crews can properly clear those lots.
Storm-Related News for Trash and Recycling
Despite continued snow in the immediate forecast, G. Mello plans to run its Tuesday trash and A week recycling routes as usual.
To accommodate both the plow trucks and trash and recycling trucks, please do not put trash or recycling bags or carts on the street. Please place them near the edge of the street on the curb or sidewalk if there is one. You may need to shovel out a space for your trash/recycling carts. If you only have white trash bags, make it stand out from the white snow with a marker or colored piece of paper taped to the bag.
Please have your trash and recycling out by 7 am though it may be that your trash and recycling will be picked up at a different time of day than usual.
Monday route residents- G.Mello apologizes for not being able to collect all of today’s recycling on and near Plum Island. They expect to pick that up on Tuesday, December 3.
