February 14, 2015 7:45 PM – Pretreatment of main roads and collectors has been completed.  The snow is starting to accumulate and all plows have been sent to their routes (mains and secondary roads) to begin plowing.


February 14, 2015 3:15 PM – Good afternoon, and Happy Valentine’s Day.  Another winter storm is upon us.  The DPW has begun pretreating the main and collector roads, but as is discussed below, due to a shortage of salt this pretreatment is with a combination of salt and sand.  This will likely result in roads conditions that are not what we have grown accustom to with salt alone.  Please drive with caution as it is possible that slippery spots will develop, and ultimately hard pack.  The current plan is to begin staging plow crews at 5PM, and begin plowing mains and secondary roads soon after that.  Recent forecasts call for snow throughout the afternoon, night, and continuing until tomorrow afternoon.  It also is calling for high winds and white out conditions.  If at all possible, please plan to be off the roads tonight, and if you can refrain from parking on Main Street Hyannis between midnight and 6:00 AM it would be appreciated.  We will update this site throughout the storm.

February 14, 2015 3:15 PM – Due to the storm, the Transfer Station at 45 Flint Street, Marstons Mills, will be closed on Sunday, February 15, 2015
