Ashland Police Department News

A major winter storm has been forecasted for Thursday, which is anticipated to bring heavy snow and winds to our area. In an effort to assist the DPW in clearing the roadways, the town has issued a parking ban on all streets starting 2 am on Thursday until 6 am Friday. Vehicles will not be permitted to park on any public ways during these hours. Violators will be towed at their owners expense. For convenience, parking will be permitted in the Town's Front Street Municipal Parking Lot during the ban. We are strongly discouraging any travel during the storm. If you don't need to go out, please stay home. Don't forget to bring your pets inside and check on your elderly neighbors. We will have additional personnel on hand to address the needs of our residents, so please don't hesitate to call on us.

Don't forget about our beloved furry friends in these times of extreme cold weather. Despite having fur, they can be affected by the cold just as quickly as we can. Bring them inside!
