No parking downtown for snow removal

Please remember that parking is restricted downtown on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. for snow removal.

Overnight parking is prohibited on Fourth and Fifth avenues between Adams Street and Railway Avenue and on Third Avenue between Monroe and Railway on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for street cleaning. The east side of the road will be done on Tuesdays and the west side on Wednesdays. 

New signs have been installed reminding drivers of the restriction between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. through March 15.

The Public Works Department wants to provide the public with the safest driving surface possible. Now is a good time to remove items that you may have placed within the streets’ rights of way.

Personal items (boats, vehicles, trailers, etc.) should be removed from the public rights of way. These items constitute impediments to the removal of snow and general maintenance of roads and alleyways during the winter season.

Please have a conversation with your youngsters about the dangers of snow-plowing equipment, and discourage them from building snow forts, sledding, etc. in public rights of way. Rights of way extend at least 10 feet from the edge of the roadway.
