Storm Update: March 8, 2018

Good morning!

As you can see, we got some snow last night, and it’s still coming down. Here are some updates:

There is no school in the City of Melrose today. The Council on Aging is also closed.

The Melrose Public Library and City Hall are open. However, we are having some power issues so the phones and computers at City Hall are down. Please call the City Yard Storm Center at 781-665-0142 with any problems or questions.

Trash and recycling pickup will be delayed by one day: Today’s trash will be picked up tomorrow, and Friday’s will be picked up on Saturday.

We are having power issues around town, including the traffic signals at Main and Foster and Main and Grove streets. 

If you are having power issues, please contact National Grid directly at 1-800-322-3223, or go to their website at and access your issue by entering your address or account number. If you have downed wires or an emergency, please contact the Melrose Police or Fire Departments.
