Winter Overnight Parking Restriction

The Whitman Board of Selectmen has directed that there be No Overnight Parking from December 1st to April 1st.  The DPW needs to be able to salt, sand and plow the roadways. When a State or Town Emergency has been declared then the Whitman Police Department can ticket and if necessary tow vehicles that hinder this process. However when there is not a State or Town Emergency declared the DPW has difficulty dealing with vehicles that are hindering this operation and there is no mechanism for enforcement. This is the reason for the overnight parking restriction.

The Whitman Police Department is required to enforce this action. The Whitman Police Department will be giving out courtesy Parking Violation Warnings beginning December 1st for a period of time prior to issuing Parking Tickets to violators.
