Mayor Kennedy Provides Update on Snowstorm

The office of Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy issued the following press release Monday at 4 p.m.:

The cleanup for the City of Lynn is still ongoing. The patience of the residents is greatly appreciated during this historical storm.

There is a voluntary parking ban for the City of Lynn. Vehicle operators are encouraged not to park on city streets as the Department of Public Works continues to remove snow. Residents may hear an announcement over a loud speaker to move their vehicles temporarily to allow for additional snow removal.

Homeowners are reminded that they are responsible for snow removal that must include clearing snow from all sidewalks, curb cuts, corners of sidewalks at intersections with or without crosswalks and handicapped ramps. Failure to adequately remove snow from the above-listed areas will result in a $50 snow fine per day that each violation exists.

The depositing of snow from private property and sidewalks on to city streets is prohibited. Violators are subject to a $100 fine.

The removal of snow from fire hydrants is appreciated by the Lynn Fire Department.

Trash collection will remain on a regular pickup schedule this week.

Requests for snow removal from public streets can be directed to the Department of Public Works at (781) 268-8000.
