Winter parking ban / snow removal


As voted at a prior Annual Town Meeting, the Tyngsborough Town By-Law, Article 38 states:  “No person, other than an employee acting for or in behalf of the Town, shall, by himself or herself or through his/her agents, servants or employees, in any manner place or deposit or cause to be placed or deposited any snow, other than incidental amounts thereof, on any public sidewalk, street or way which has been previously cleared of snow by the Town.  Violations of this section may be enforced by the Highway Administrator, the Building Inspector, or the Police Department, by non-criminal disposition as provided in Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 40, Section 21D as the same now is or may hereafter be amended.  Penalties for such violations shall be $50.00 for the first offense and $100.00 for each subsequent offense.”


In accordance with the regulations of the Town of Tyngsborough regarding street openings, no permits will be issued to open or excavate a public way after November 15 of any given year, or prior to April 1 of any given year, except in the case of absolute emergency.



The Town of Tyngsborough requests residents to be mindful of parked vehicles impeding the removal of snow.  Vehicles may be towed at the resident’s expense.
