Welcome to December! Aside from Santa coming to town this month, it's time for winter parking restrictions!
Here's the info from the city. It goes into effect today through March 1st.
Winter Parking Regulations
·Posted signs take precedence. Please read the street signs for winter parking instructions BEFORE YOU PARK.
·NO PARKING is allowed on through highways and bus routes from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.
When a Snow Emergency is Declared
-Alternate side parking is required city-wide from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. EXCEPT where posted as No Parking and on through highways and bus routes, where parking is not allowed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
-On even-numbered calendar days (before midnight) a vehicle must be legally parked on the side of the street with even house numbers; on odd-numbered calendar days (before midnight) a vehicle must be parked on the side of the street with odd house numbers.
-Proper parking is vital as it allows snow and ice equipment better access to clear the parking lanes and reach the curb. It also allows us to be more efficient in plowing rather than weaving in and around cars.
