It is important to stay informed, especially when a potential storm is involved. The Town of Winthrop strives to make information regarding snow emergencies and parking bans available to the public as soon as possible. The information is posted on the town's official website and social media accounts, sent to WCAT for broadcast on their stations, and in the event of severe weather events, by phone via the Code Red system.
While all of these resources are available to the public, it is important to opt-in so you receive the alerts in a timely manner. You can sign up to be notified by email when snow emergencies, parking bans, and closures are posted to the town website. Click here to subscribe to news and alerts.
