Local Law #1 of 1991 prohibits parking of vehicles on all Town roads between the hours of 9PM and 7AM from the 1st day of October each year and continuing through the 15th day of April in the succeeding year. It is also the responsibility of each vehicle owner to remove his/her vehicle from a Town road whenever snow removal operations are in progress. Also, remove any basketball backboards or other bulky items, especially trash cans, from curbside so that the snow can be removed from streets as quickly as possible.
