Snow closes Arlington schools; town offices remote

Snow-plow image

There is no school in Arlington on Friday, Jan. 7, and all town offices will be closed, as the town braces for potentially 6 to 8 inches of snow.

Town services will be available remotely (online and phone).

This includes the following offices:

- Town Hall, 730 Mass. Ave.

- Senior Center, 27 Maple St.
- Recreation Office, 422 Summer St.
- DPW Administrative, 51 Grove St.
- Inspectional Services, 23 Maple St.
- APD Admin & Records Room, 112 Mystic St.
- Fire Administrative, 411 Mass. Ave.
- Office at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery

As of Thursday night, the town had not called a snow emergency or parking ban; however, residents are asked to park cars off the street.

The Robbins and Fox Libraries will be closed, and Friday's trash pickup will be delayed one day.

During a snow event...

Exercise caution when traveling, and park off-street to help facilitate snow removal operations. After a storm, residents and businesses are reminded to keep public walkways clear in accordance with town bylaws. Now is a good time to adopt a fire hydrant to keep it clear of snow in the event of an emergency. Catch basins should be cleared year-round to reduce neighborhood flooding.

Bluebike Service

At this time, there is no plan to suspend Bluebikes service during tomorrow's snowfall. Bikes will remain available, and snow removal services have been scheduled. For future updates, please check at https://twitter.com/RideBluebikes.
