Ayer received more than 24 inches of snow in the blizzard.

All roads are passable thanks to the excellent work of our DPW staff, who worked all weekend to keep the roads open and safe. We appreciate residents' continued cooperation as we continue to address the impact of this major storm.

While all roads are in good condition, most sidewalks are not yet cleared. Motorists and pedestrians need to use extreme caution. Remember, it is a violation of town bylaw to place snow on a town street or sidewalk.

Next steps are: continued sidewalk plowing, treating roads to prevent icing, road widening and snow removal in priority areas.
