Snow Emergency? Parking ban?

By admin | February 9, 2015

We do not declare “snow emergencies” in Williamstown. We figure our residents are smart enough to stay off the roads when prudent. The only practical effect would be to ban parking on Spring Street. It’s hard enough for small business to compete in today’s economy without a parking ban. So please be patient as you crawl over snowbanks on Spring Street and elsewhere. Our boys (and Kirby) are working day and night to keep up with the storms and clean up afterward.
