[ARCHIVED] Winter Parking Ban Declared

Winter Parking Ban (002)

The Winter Parking Ban will be in effect overnight Thursday (technically Friday morning 2-25-22) from 1:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m.  There shall be no parking on the Winter Parking Ban streets (salt routes which include bus and truck routes, arterial streets, State Highways, and County Trunks within the City’s jurisdiction). Please seek alternative parking on non-restricted streets.   Tickets will be placed during the Winter Parking Ban.  Winter Parking Ban fine is $50.00. 


Crews will be out during the day today cleaning up from the snow overnight.  They plan on resting through the evening tonight and starting early tomorrow morning to hit the main roads.  Please note, this is a winter parking ban and we expect snowfall in the early hours of tomorrow, meaning our goal is to get the main routes clear of snow for travelers tomorrow morning.  With continued snow during these hours, side streets and residential streets may not be plowed fully at this time.  It is just the nature of when the snow falls that will determine when we can hit all streets.  That is why there isn’t a parking ban on those streets at this time.


Please stay at least 75 feet behind the plow truck when they have their blades down and are plowing or when trucks are salting.   If you can’t see the driver in the mirror, the driver cannot see you.  Remember plows back up frequently.  Thank you for helping our crews plow the streets safely.


Salt Route Maps are available on the City website,, by clicking on departments, Public Infrastructure, Streets, Snow & Ice Control, and Snow/Salt Maps.


Notification of the Winter Parking Ban will be on the City website,, as well as the City Facebook page, WOMT, WCUB, WLKN, WTAQ, WBAY, FOX 11, NBC26, Xfinity Channel 4, text and/or email alert or call 920-686-6550.
