UPDATE: Parking Ban Now Starts 3pm – Nope, it’s Noon Again


[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.

If you can’t trust cityoflynn.net, well, what can you trust? Well, the city website was changed back to the original 12pm, and we the local press were left feeling a little bit confused, to say the least. For proof, we were able to source a screenshot from a reader who had the foresight, for whatever reason, to grab one:

Originally scheduled to begin at noon today, the snow emergency parking ban has been pushed back to 3pm per Mayor Kennedy’s facebook page and cityoflynn.net  — nope — the Item’s facebook page.

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.

*All school lots will be open except for Aborn, Fallon and Sewell-Anderson. Don’t park at those.

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(?).
