Reminder: Do not park on the street overnight

Article Published 12/29/2014

Winter is here and residents are reminded that it is illegal for vehicles to be parked on the roadway from 1 a.m. until 6 a.m. during the months of December, January, and February -- or anytime that snow removal is apparent or imminent.
Vehicles parked on the street are a hindrance to snow removal and in white out conditions, could jeopardize the safety of snow plow drivers.
Also, not being able to fully clear the snow off streets, due to a parked vehicle, may affect the safety of other drivers, who drive the street and have to swerve to avoid icy spots, or drive in slick areas.
The fine for violating the winter parking ordinance is $10.  
Most neighboring cities have similar ordinances.
