Mayor Jackson, does this parking ban include town owned 96 gallon trash carts. Seeing 96 gallon trash carts do constitute a hazard or obstruction to vehicular or pedestrian traffic in a snow storm... Does everyone agree that “Jackson Cart a Ways” sounds better than saying 96 gallon trash carts? LOL

I saw many people violate the parking ban and a few trash barrels knocked over on Whitney. The parking ban is never enforced
