As we’re about to receive our next snow storm, I am including some snow emergency reminders below.


Snow Emergency Parking Rules

Snow emergency parking rules will be in place beginning at 12 a.m. on Thursday, January 4, and will continue through at least Friday, January 5.

Residents may park on the ODD numbered side of non-emergency neighborhood streets, but should always park in driveways if available.

Parking is prohibited on all designated emergency arteries. Click here for a complete list of emergency arteries.

Residents on side streets posted permanently as one-side parking should park on the side always allowed.

Cars parked in violation of emergency rules or impede snow plowing operations pose a public safety risk, and WILL BE TOWED.   Regardless of parking rules, vehicles determined to be in obstruction of snow removal or emergency vehicles are subject to towing if not moved.

For assistance, residents can use the City’s snow request application at or call the DPW’s snow operation hotline at (617) 376-1927.

A Coastal Flood Warning is in place for this storm. For flood-related assistance, call (617) 376-1910. Residents in coastal areas should take appropriate precautions and monitor weather reports.  ALWAYS call 911 in an emergency.

There will be no trash collection on Thursday, January 4.  Trash regularly scheduled for Wednesday will be collected Friday. Regular Thursday and Friday collection days will be collected on Saturday.

The forecast calls for high winds, which creates the potential for downed tree limbs and power lines.  If you lose power, call National Grid at 1-800-465-1212 or visit their Outage Central page at
