Looks like snow and ice are coming our way this weekend. Just a friendly reminder of the Snow Emergency Parking Rules for 2019
Residents may park on the even numbered side of non-emergency neighborhood streets, but should always park in driveways if available. Parking is prohibited on all designated emergency arteries. A complete list of emergency arteries can be found here.
Residents on side streets posted permanently as one-side parking should park on the side always allowed.
Cars parked in violation of emergency rules or impede snow plowing operations pose a public safety risk, and WILL BE TOWED. Regardless of parking rules, vehicles determined to be in obstruction of snow removal or emergency vehicles are subject to towing if not moved.
For assistance, residents can use the City’s snow request application at email@example.com or call the DPW's snow operation hotline at (617) 376-1927. Please use this number if you have a question or concern about plowing and/or sanding.
For flood-related assistance, call (617) 376-1910. Residents in coastal areas should take appropriate precautions and monitor weather reports. ALWAYS call 911 in an emergency.

On Friday, December 28, 2018, at approx. 3:00am, an alert resident contacted Quincy Police and reported suspicious behavior. The caller stated that he observed a Pontiac Grand Am with extensive damage parked on the side of Guild St with four individuals inside the vehicle. He stated that he observed a male exit the driver's seat of the Pontiac and enter his neighbor's vehicle. The resident told officers that he saw the male rummage through his neighbor's vehicle and walk further down Guild Street while pulling on the handles of other vehicles.
Officer approached the Pontiac, which was occupied by three individuals. Officers spoke with the occupants, now identified as Kristin McNeil, David Attardo, and Siobhan Brady. Mr. Attardo provided Officers with a license in the name of another individual, but he was eventually identified as David Attardo. None of the occupants of the vehicle would identify the driver.
Based on statements of the reporting party, observations made at the scene, and their refusal to identify the driver, officers concluded that they were all joint venture in the car being broken into. The driver was never located or identified.
David Attardo, 32, of O Street Boston, Siobhan Brady, 28, of East Water St. Rockland, and Kristin McNeil, 35, of School Street, Quincy, were arrested and charged with Breaking & Entering Into a MV at Night to Commit A Felony.
All are scheduled to be arraigned at Quincy District Court this morning.

On Friday, November 30, 2018, at approx. 4:05pm, a victim reported that an unknown male had just attempted to steal packages that had been delivered to her home on Dixwell Ave. As Officer Francis was responding to speak with the victim, an off-duty Lieutenant contacted dispatch reporting that he had observed a blue Altima in the Dixwell Ave area acting suspiciously.
Officer Francis located the vehicle as it pulled into a driveway on Dimmock Street. Officer Francis conducted an investigation and determined that the occupants were in possession of at least 10 packages, all believed to be stolen from the immediate area. The vehicle had pulled into the driveway in an attempt to elude the police.
