After just 16 hours, the on-street snow emergency parking ban in Hamilton will come to an end.
Tuesday night's storm delivered quite a bit less snow that forecasted. On Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service predicted up to 8-10 inches in Hamilton. After the storm was over, the weather service reported 5 inches had fallen in Hamilton by Wednesday morning, although many residents on the Hamilton-Wenham Patch Facebook page reported 2-4 inches.
A Connect-CTY message from the Hamilton Emergency Center went out on Wednesday morning at about 10 a.m., announcing that Hamilton Police Chief Russell Stevens was lifting the ban as of noon on Wednesday. It had been in place since 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
Violators were subject to a $20 ticket and the possibility of having their vehicle towed.
