Daylight savings time in the second week of March won't be the only sign of an early spring in Newton this year.

Thanks to a law change made by the city's aldermen Monday, residents will able to park overnight on the street beginning on April 15 instead of April 30. The 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. ban for street sweeping will also begin later this fall, on Nov. 15 instead of Nov. 1, giving residents a full extra month of overnight street parking.
