Parking Ban Lifted & Channel 28 Fixed

Attention Belmont:

Effective immediately the limited parking ban is no longer in effect.  Although the roads are significantly wider due to melting, we do ask that you use care when parking to make sure there is enough room for emergency vehicles to pass.

Happy to report that Verizon followed up fairly quickly on complaints that there was interference on BMC Channel 28 video quality. Verizon technicians were at BMC this morning and repaired the problem. The signal quality on BMC Gov't/Ed. Access TV Channel 28 is back to normal.
