Southborough’s annual winter parking ban went into effect last Friday. That means through March 15, there is no overnight (midnight to 6:00 am) parking on any public way regardless of the weather.

During snow or ice events, street parking is also not allowed at any time night or day. Vehicles violating those rules will be towed at owners expense.

Here is the full announcement, issued this afternoon by the Town:

WINTER PARKING BAN 2017/2018

Effective December 1, 2017, there will be no parking on any public way in the Town of Southborough from 12 midnight until 6:00 a.m. and furthermore, there will be no parking on any public way during any snowstorm in the Town of Southborough. Vehicles parked will be towed at the owner’s expense (according to the Town’s Code). This Ban will be in effect from December 1, 2017 through March 15, 2018.

Illegal parking during unusual storms occurring before or after the Ban will be dealt with according to Section 152-6 of the Code of the Town of Southborough which states:
“The Superintendent of Streets, or other officer having charge of the ways, shall be authorized, for the purpose of removing or plowing snow or of removing ice from any way, to remove or cause to be removed to some convenient place, including in such term any public garage, any vehicle interfering with such work, and the liability for the cost of such removal and the storage charges, if any, resulting therefrom shall be upon the owner of such vehicle”.
