NORTH ADAMS -- The office of Mayor Richard Alcombright has announced that the winter parking ban has been lifted, effective immediately, due to an anticipated stretch of mild weather.
Also, the city street sweeper is now out cleaning streets, according to the announcement. Residents are welcome to sweep sand from sidewalks into the streets. The sweeper begins in the downtown and core areas of the city and works its way to the outlying sections. It may be several weeks before all streets are completed.
