Winter Parking


Winter is just around the corner - please take a minute to familiarize yourself with snow removal and street parking during snow events. Beginning on November 15, 2023, and lasting through April 15, 2024, winter parking restriction will be in effect.

For all parking lots owned by the City, beginning at midnight of November 30 of each year through midnight of March 31 of each year, alternate side parking rules shall apply in that on odd days vehicles are to be parked in odd rows and on even days vehicles are to be parked in even rows.  The date after midnight shall determine if parking should be in odd or even rows.  The Water Street lot shall have no overnight parking allowed.  The City shall install signage in all municipal parking lots indicating odd rows and even rows and the terms and conditions of this section.

Declaration of Snow Emergency.  A snow emergency is declared when a snowfall is predicted by the National Weather Service to reach a depth of 3 inches or more during any period of 24 hours or less.  A snow emergency will be considered to exist whether or not the Director of Public Works has declared a snow emergency under this ordinance.  The Director of Public Works, or designee, is hereby authorized to declare a snow emergency watch in advance of the conditions established in this ordinance by reason of forecasted heavy snow or blizzard, and all provisions of this ordinance are to become effective immediately upon the declaration of a snow emergency watch and shall remain in effect for a period of 48 hours or until such time as snow removal operations have been declared completed by the Director of Public Works or their designee. This section shall apply from November 15 through April 15 inclusive.
