Vehicles Not Complying With Street Sweeping Rules Will Be Towed

Please be aware that beginning on Monday, May 1, we will be towing vehicles that do not comply with the street sweeping rules that started on Monday, April 3, 2023.

Up to this point, many vehicles have been in violation of the parking regulations, and many warnings and tickets have been issued with little impact. Due to this widespread non-compliance, please be aware that towing will be in full effect going forward.

Please be sure to check the signs on your street for parking restrictions in your neighborhood. Signs will note the parking restrictions regarding hours and locations for your street. Adhering to these regulations will help you avoid the unnecessary cost and inconvenience of a violation and will help us ensure that our streets and stormwater run-off remain clean. Street sweeping is essential to eliminate issues and costs related to trash and debris getting into the underground sewage system.

If there are any missing or damaged signs in your area, please notify the City by calling 311 or 617-394-2270 and report the street name and area so that they can be repaired or replaced.

Please avoid any costly inconvenience to yourself and others by following all rules regarding street sweeping in your area and moving your vehicle appropriately. If you have any questions, please call 311 or 617-394-2270. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

City of Everett Hosting Annual Memorial Day Flag Placement

Mayor Carlo DeMaria, in collaboration with Antoine Coleman, the City of Everett’s Director of Veterans Affairs, is pleased to announce the City of Everett will be hosting the annual event to place U.S. flags on the graves of veterans at Glenwood and Woodlawn cemeteries.

Mayor DeMaria is asking residents to take part in the special task of honoring those who served our country and are now laid to rest by helping place U.S. flags on the graves of veterans. Many of these heroes gave their lives for our freedom while on active duty and it’s important to never forget their sacrifice.

“If you haven’t had the opportunity to join us for this effort before, it is a truly humbling experience to be reminded of the sacrifices that the men and women from our very own community were willing to make to defend our country and our freedom,” said Mayor DeMaria. “Placing flags is a small, but important way for us to thank and remember the individuals who have gone before us for their service.”

Volunteers are asked to meet at the following locations and times:

Glenwood Cemetery (Washington Ave., Everett, MA 02149):

• Tuesday, May 9: 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Woodlawn Cemetery (302 Elm St., Everett, MA 02149):

• Tuesday, May 16: 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.

• Wednesday, May 17: – 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

If you are able to participate, please contact Antoine Coleman, Director of Veterans Affairs, at [email protected]. If you have any questions, please contact Antoine Coleman or Gerri Miranda in our Veterans Services Office at 617-394-2320.
