Town Office Hours

The Town Office will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27 for the Thanksgiving weekend.
Alternate Side Parking Begins
Alternate side parking began on Sunday, November 15. Between 1:00am and 7:00am you must park on the odd side of the street on odd-numbered days... and on the even side of the street on even-numbered days. The tricky part is that most folks park their cars on the street prior to midnight. So, for example, if you park on the street Saturday night at 11:00pm (November 14), you should park on the ODD side of the street because Sunday, November 15 is an odd-numbered day. By complying with this ordinance, you'll make it easier for our snow plow drivers to do their job... and you won't get a ticket!
For those that live in Gallagher Plat, and those who live on Alvarez Avenue and Bruns Avenue... there is also an ordinance which prohibits parking on either side of the street if we receive over 8" of snow in a 24-hour period. At that time a snow emergency is declared. Until the snow is cleared from the roads, no parking is allowed on either side of the street. Ticketing and towing will occur for those violating this ordinance.
The Town's policy is that, if the plow directly hits a mailbox, the Town will provide relief. That could be in the form of temporarily making the mailbox usable, replacing the mailbox, or providing the owner with $75. In any case, the liability of the Town shall not exceed the $75.
If, in the process of plowing, the snow causes damage to the mailbox, that is the owner's responsibility. The town's policy is consistent with the that of surrounding municipalities.
We ask that owners notify us immediately if they believe the plow actually hit their mailbox.
