The Watertown Police Department is asking that residents be reminded of the ticketing process for snow removal. As requested, the information is listed below:

Streets are plowed on: Monday, Wednesday, & Friday

Avenues are plowed on: Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday

Please assist the Watertown Street Department by not parking on the roadways during the time that roadway is scheduled to be plowed.
