Winter parking restrictions in effect

Winter parking restrictions went into effect 8 a.m. today to ensure that emergency crews can make it through city streets.

The high levels of snow accumulation have narrowed the streets. Parking will be banned on the even numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes until April 1. If conditions improve, the city might lift the ban earlier.

Parking is allowed on Snow Emergency routes, parkways and the odd numbered side of non-Snow Emergency routes. 

The city has had about 57 inches of snow this winter with very little melting.
