Message from the DPW

A parking ban remains in effect from Nov. 15 through April 15.

Property owners are responsible for their sidewalk, walkway or driveway to be clear of snow and ice even if caused by a snow plow.

Shirley town bylaw states:

A. Snow in Ways -- No person, other than an employee of the Town of Shirley or an independent contractor for the Town of Shirley, engaged in snow removal for the Town, shall pile, push or blow snow or ice onto or across a public way, or any way that is plowed and sanded by the Town, and leave any such snow or ice in said way.

B. Obstructing Hydrants -- Depositing snow and or ice in such a manner as to obstruct the operation of any Fire Hydrant is prohibited.

C. Penalty -- Violation of this By-law shall be subject to a penalty of fifty dollars ($50) for the first offense and one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each subsequent offense.

The DPW tries to maintain clear, safe and accessible roads and parking lots for the citizens of Shirley.
