Dennis Police announce parking ban for Saturday to Sunday

10 a.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Sunday

From the Dennis Police Department:

The Dennis Department of Public Works will be out treating and clearing roadways from a storm that will impact the Cape from Saturday morning, January 7 through Sunday January 8th.  For this reason a parking ban will be in effect.

At this time weather forecasts call for up to 10-15 inches of snow here on the Cape with  winds possibly gusting at times to 40 mph.

The parking ban will begin 10AM on Saturday January 7, 2017 and last until 10AM on Sunday, January 8, 2017. Vehicles parked on roadways may be towed at the owner’s expense. This will allow for the DPW to properly clear the roadways.

In addition, private contractors are reminded that it is a violation of Dennis Town Bylaws to push snow from private lots into the roads.  Violation of this provision may result in a fine of $100.00 to $300.00.

Citizens encountering fallen trees or wires should call the Police Department using the 911 system - if an emergency - or dialing 508-394-1313.  Do not go near downed lines – they may be charged.  Police or fire personnel will respond to these calls and notify appropriate utilities. 

Contact Eversource (Electric Company) to report any power outages at 1-800-592-2000.  Citizens are encouraged to use the Eversource phone system to report power outages – the system automatically tracks these calls and provides information to Eversource as to how many people are out in a given area.  The system will also give the caller a call back to provide information as to when the power is expected to be turned back on.

Drivers should continue to use caution if they must be out on the roadways during the storm.

Use 911 for emergencies only, for all other calls you can dial 508-394-1313. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
