The town’s overnight winter parking ban took effect on Dec. 1. Parking is prohibited for more than one hour between 1-6 a.m. when the Department of Public Works — in anticipation of snow — advises the public through the town’s community notification system that the ban is in effect. Vehicles that remain on the road when a parking ban is in effect may be ticketed or towed. The policy does not require homeowners with limited parking to find off-street parking for the entire winter season. The notification system automatically calls the land lines of all residents and businesses. Any household or business that would like to add a mobile phone number or e-mail address can do so by going to the town’s website, www.danvers.govoffice.com and clicking on “Connect CTY.” The town will also publicize the bans on local media, the town’s Web page and social media sites, the Danvers cable TV station, and on two electronic billboards.
