1/7/17[4:09pm] So, this is what happened. Briefly today, the official city website changed its information to reflect a 3pm parking ban. The Item shared the change on its facebook page, but not its website. Here on LynnHappens, we went full-throttle with this post and an aggressive social media share.

You can now rejoice – maybe – in having a little more time to move your cars to a *school lot, the MBTA garage, or a generous friend’s driveway. The Ellis Street city lot is also available.

Also, be prepared for the possibility of waking up early, as all cars must be removed from school lots by 6am after the ban is lifted (we do not yet know when the ban will end). This is absolutely necessary so school lots can be cleared and ready for Monday.
Trash – delayed one day(?).

11.9.16 One final post on the 2016 election. Last night, photographer/intern Emilie Errié and I (your editor, Seth Albaum) along with Ryan Robbins figured we’d hit up a few local watering holes to get reactions as results came in. I wanted to stay within close proximity to City Hall, and only strayed to go to the…
