We had a great school dropoff this morning, and I want to thank everyone—parents, staff, DPW, and police—for making things go so smoothly.
- Tonight we will be making a major effort to remove snow from business districts, including the downtown area, upper Main Street, Melrose Highlands, West Wyoming Avenue, and Cedar Park. This will provide easier access to these areas.
- Also tonight, we will be removing snow from commuter lots to maximize parking for both commuters and people with overnight passes. This is a bit tricky because of overnight parking in these lots but we will do our best.
- The challenge all of us face now is that snow is melting in this 40-degree weather and then freezing overnight. We are going to have ice, including black ice, so please use caution when walking and driving.
- Please call the Department of Public Works directly at 781-665-0142 to report any problem areas, as they are continuing to work throughout the city, and this is the most direct form of communication.
