Heavy snowfall has closed Quincy Public Schools for Thursday Jan. 27 in yet another snowstorm on the South Shore.

Quincy College will have a delayed opening this morning also because of snow. Faculty are expected to report at 1 p.m., and all classes before 4 p.m. have been canceled.

The city declared a snow emergency last night that will continue until 7 p.m. this evening.

As such, all parking rules are enforced, including no parking on either side of emergency arteries and no overnight parking without a parking permit.

Residents are permitted to park on the even-numbered side of the streets only.

Vehicles in violation of winter parking rules or hampering snow removal efforts will be subject to towing.

The average towing fee is $125 plus the cost of storage.

There will be no exceptions made for short-term (10-15 minute) parking.

According to Captain John Dougan with the Quincy Police, 86 cars were towed as of 9:30 a.m., down from the over a hundred cars towed for the previous storm.

A list of designated emergency arteries, where no parking is allowed, can be found here.

As of 9:30 a.m., there were no reported car accidents or power outages, Quincy police said.
