Winter Reminders

Winter Parking– Winter parking regulations are in effect from November 1 until March 31. During this time, there is no parking on village streets between 2 am and 6 am. Parking tickets are $20 and must be paid within five days. See the winter parking ordinance.

Snow & Ice Removal– Village sidewalks must be kept clear of all snow and ice. Snow and/or ice must be removed within 24 hours of the time the snow/ice ceases to accumulate. Snow may NOT be deposited on any village street. In addition, it is greatly appreciated if residents would keep fire hydrants on or near their property clear of snow. See the snow removal ordinance.

Kane Street parking changes
Beginning with the start of the new school year in September, there will be no parking on the south side of Kane Street between Bradley and South Street from 7:30 to 8:00 AM and from 3:00 to 3:30 PM. This change is an effort to reduce congestion in the area adjacent to the school and is intended to improve the safety of students being dropped off or picked up from school.

Sewer Utility Needs Your Help!

Recently, the Fall River Sewer Utility has experienced an increase in wastewater pumping station malfunctions due to “disposable” cleaning items and wipes entering the wastewater stream. Many cleaning products labeled “disposable” or even “flushable” can cause problems for homeowners and the Village. Disinfecting wipes, Swiffer mop refills, baby wipes, and other products made from similar materials should be disposed of in the trash- never flushed down a toilet. These items do not dissolve or break down after being flushed and can clog household sewer pipes, resulting in an expensive and messy repair and clean-up for a property owner. If these items find their way into the Village’s sewer system, they can clog pipes and pumps in the Village’s sewer pumping stations. This leads to expensive repairs and potential interruptions in sewer service.

Please help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the Village’s wastewater system by disposing of these products properly: in the trash.
