While the Town understands the importance of this upcoming weekend to residents and their families, we recommend everyone to stay off the roads from Thursday afternoon until Saturday morning, 6:00 a.m. If you must use the roads, then use with extreme caution and travel at safe speeds. Please do not park on Town roads to avoid interference with snow removal operations.
