MVT Alert: Edgartown, Tisbury parking bans in effect at 8 pm
Edgartown has announced a parking ban on all town streets beginning at 8 pm, Friday. "Motorists are encouraged to stay off the roads and allow emergency personnel to work through the duration of the storm," Police Chief Tony Bettencourt said. Parking will be allowed in town lots.
Tisbury will impose a town-wide on-street parking ban from 8 pm, Friday until noon Saturday, in order to allow snow removal equipment to operate. The downtown area and main roads will be the primary focus. Vehicles will be towed as necessary, police said. No parking will be allowed in the Water Street and Union Street parking lots beginning at midnight. The lots will be used to pile snow and truck it away, according to public works department director Fred LaPiana. The Park and Ride lot will remain open.
