FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The City of Watertown has received enough snow to require plowing of the Downtown Business District. Therefore, to allow Downtown Businesses ample time to remove accumulated snow from their adjacent sidewalks prior to plowing operations of streets; the Watertown Street Division will start removing snow from the Downtown Business District at 4 AM, Monday, January 25th, 2021.
