Winter Traffic & Parking Ban-Update






 No vehicle shall park  to interfere with or hinder the removal of snow from any street or way.  The Road Commissioner may cause a vehicle so parked on any street or way to be removed from the street and placed in a suitable parking space off street, at the expense of the vehicle owner.

 For the purpose of facilitating the removal of snow from the streets of the Town, the Board of Selectmen or Road Commissioner may cause to be placed properly marked signs along any street or streets, as he/she shall from time to time deem necessary.  It shall be unlawful for the operator of the vehicles to enter upon, stop or park within the space indicated by such signs.


No vehicle shall be parked on any street or way of the Town from November 1 to April 15 of the following year.  vehicles so parked may be removed or caused to be moved.  Emergency vehicles of the Town, ambulances, doctors and police vehicles within the scope of their duty are exempted.  The registered owner of any vehicle parked in violation of this notice shall be deemed to have committed the violation and shall be responsible for all penalties and charges assessed.


Because the contracts between the Town of Lyman and its snowplowing contractors require that roads be cleared of snow to the outside edges of the shoulders of the roads, it is vitally important that all plowed rights of way within the Town remain clear of obstruction.

It is, therefore, the obligation of all owners and occupants of property within the Town to assure that no mailboxes, paperboxes, signs or similar structures obstruct plowed rights of way.  Any such structures within a right of way exist there at the risk of the owner.  Neither the Town nor the Snowplow Contractors are responsible for damage caused to the structure by the plow.

M.R.S.A. Title 29-A Chapter 21 §2396 (4)

  1. SNOW. A person may not place and allow to remain on a public way snow or slush that has not accumulated there naturally.
