The cleanup continues

Police: Residents followed parking bans; a handful of tows


In Danvers, notification of the snow emergency started going out on Thursday, using newspapers, social media and an automated reverse call system, which recorded 92 percent of households got the call, Lee said.

Danvers crews were out yesterday clearing snow from intersections and widening roads in the downtown, Lee said.

“I don’t think we towed much because we really beat the message to stay off the road during the storm,” said Michael Collins, Beverly’s commissioner of public services and engineering. “People behaved pretty well, which allowed us to do a lot during the storm.”

Beverly crews were also out trying to get rid of large snowbanks downtown. On Sunday night in downtown Beverly, there were about 10 loaders within a 1,000-foot stretch clearing snow.

“It takes a long time to recover from a storm like this,” Collins said.
