The Public Works Department would like to pass on a few friendly reminders for the upcoming winter season:

1. Freeport residents are allowed two (2) 5-gallon buckets of sand per storm. Sand is now located adjacent to the silver recycling bullet on Hunter Rd. in front of the Public Works Facility.

2. No parking is allowed on public streets nor in turnarounds during winter storm events – please keep streets and turnarounds clear of vehicles (including trailers, campers, etc.) during a storm. Our winter parking ban is now in effect, from 11:00pm-7:00am, and will continue until April 15. For more info, see Town Ordinance Sections 48-208 & 48-209.

3. For residents who park vehicles in driveways, please keep sidewalks clear so our sidewalk machines are not restricted in doing their job.

4. On a final note, please do not push snow into sidewalks or public streets as this is not only against Maine state law, it is also costly and time-consuming for the Public Works Department to send vehicles and manpower out to go back to clean up a street or sidewalk.

For any residents who have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Public Works Department at 865-4461. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
