The Chamber has Successfully Repealed the Snow Bylaw
Partnering with Chamber Members and business owners, the Chamber has focused on the North Reading Snow Bylaw, which requires businesses to clear the snow in front of their businesses within 24 hours of a storm. We presented at two Selectmen Meetings, and at the October 15th Town Meeting, we successfully repealed the bylaw. 
The Public Works Director noted that due to staffing, the DPW is not able to plow in front of the businesses this winter, so businesses will still need to clear in front of their properties this winter.  That fact notwithstanding, we will focus on the long-term victory, as the repeal will go into effective on July 1, 2019. Thank you to our members and committee, led by Eric Evans, who worked on this issues for nearly a year. Read more in the Transcript’s coverage.
