First, we would like to thank the community for being cooperative and patient during this spring nor’easter. By declaring a snow emergency early last evening, we were able to get cars off the snow emergency route before the bulk of the storm hit – which is the primary purpose of a snow emergency.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding this morning... read more
