"Failure to do so may result in a ticket and/or your vehicle being towed. Please restrict travel to necessary tasks only and work from home if you can. Thanks for your cooperation."
Town Hall, the Senior Center and the Library will not open until 10 a.m. Thursday, the town said. But a decision on whether to open or close will be made in the morning, depending on storm conditions.
"Please stay safe and off the roads as much as possible," the statement said.
