All overnight parking (from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.) on non-alternate side streets is prohibited. Overnight parking will be permitted on the streets where alternate side of the street parking is permitted. Motorists are cautioned to follow the posted signs and ensure they are on the proper side of the street to avoid being ticketed. Alternate-side parking is for a 24 hour period.
Parking between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. is prohibited on any street that does not have winter/alternate side parking. Vehicles found in violation of the ordinance will be towed at the owner's expense and fined $50. Motorists are asked to cooperate to ensure that snow removal operations can be completed.
The city is stressing that the winter parking weather alert will be rescinded only when snow removal operations are completed, and not as soon as the storm is over.
