Lynnfield Residents asked to clean storm drains

January 11, 2018

Residents asked to clean storm drains

The Town of Lynnfield is asking residents to help prevent flooding by clearing the storm drains around their homes of snow and debris.

In anticipation of heavy rains, warm temperatures and resulting melting of snow and ice, flooding conditions could quickly arise in Lynnfield. While public works crews will be busy for the next few days clearing culverts and attending to problem spots, it is impossible for Town workers to clear every storm drain and catch basin in Town. We are asking resdient to help prevent flooding in their newighborhoods by clearing away any snow and ice, as well as leaves, twigs, trash and other debris from storm drains and catch basins around their home.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Snow emergency declared, Town offices and schools closed

Thursday, January 4, 2018

Town Hall, the Senior Center, the Lynnfield Public Library and Lynnfield Public Schools will be closed on Thursday, January 4, 2018 due to reports of a severe snow emergency. The police and fire departments will be open and snow and ice removal operations will be ongoing throughout the storm.

A winter snow emergency will be in effect on Wednesday night at midnight. The emergency will remain in effect until further notice. Please remove all parked vehicles from streets. They are subject to ticketing and toning. The measure is necessary to ensure that streets can be plowed properly.

For public safety issues, please contact the Police Department at 781-334-3131 or the Fire Department at 781-334-5151. In case of emergency, call 911.

Trash collection will not take place on Thursday, January 4, 2018. Trash collection will resume on Friday for all streets regularly scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday pickup. Due to the volume of stops, some trash scheduled for pickup on Thursday may be picked up on Saturday if the routes are not completed on Friday. Please do not place trash out for collection until Friday morning.

Preparations for a shelter are in place if homes are without power or heat for an extended period. Residents in need of shelter should call the Police Department. If a shelter is opened, notice will be given via the Town website (www.town.lynnfield.ma.us) and through the Code Red emergency notification system. If you are in need of shelter or emergency services, please notify the police or fire departments.

During the snow emergency, if you must drive, please use caution. Please be patient while Town personnel and contractors complete their snow removal operations. Thank you for your cooperation.

From Lynnfield DPW – All streets to be treated prior to storm

December 24, 2017

All streets to be treated prior to storm

Due to the length and the nature of this week’s snow and ice events, the Town is working to address icy conditions. Some side streets were not scraped completely because removal of slush would also remove the salt that prevents black ice conditions. Town sanders will be out salting all streets prior to the upcoming storm. Please use caution driving in Lynnfield and around the region, as black ice and refreezing streets present hazards. Please refrain from parking on the street and ensure roads are unobstructed so that plows and sanders are unimpeded during snow events. Thank you for your cooperation.
