MIDDLETOWN, R.I., as of 1:00 AM Thursday, January 2, 2014, a snow-parking ban will begin for the Town of Middletown. Vehicles parked on the street in violation of the snow ban are subject to towing to allow the passage of town plow trucks and emergency vehicles. The parking ban will remain in effect until further notice to allow for the removal of accumulated snow. In addition, the Middletown Public Works Department reminds residents not to deposit snow into any state or town road because it contributes to hazardous driving conditions. Thank you and Stay Safe!
