Street Sweeping Regulations

Street sweeping regulations will go into effect on May thru October. Parking is prohibited and violators will be towed on Commercial Street in street sweeping zones from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. In addition, the center of town is swept every morning before zone sweeping starts. See Documentation

Overhanging Tree Limbs, Bushes, and Hedges

Residents should be aware that the Highway Department continually monitors our Town roadways for overhanging tree limbs and overgrown shrubs and hedges that may create a public safety issue or impede Public Works operations. Trees, shrubs and hedges that are not properly trimmed create pedestrian and vehicular traffic hazards, as well as hinder Public Works operations such as pick-up of trash and recycling, snow removal, plowing and sanding. If the Department of Public Works determines that trees, shrubs or hedges on private property are creating an obstruction, the property owner is notified in writing that they will need to prune or trim the vegetation. If this is not completed within a reasonable amount of time, the Department of Public Works will take action to complete the requested work.
