Winter parking regulations in effect as snow could come this week
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for portions of the state from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night.
With the start of the winter season, the city of Woodbury sent out a press release last week informing residents that the city's parking regulations are once again in effect.
To facilitate plowing, parking on city streets is banned between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. from Nov. 1 through April 1. City ordinance No. 1604 also prohibits on-street parking any time two or more inches of snow have accumulated, until after the street has been completely plowed. The two-inch guideline applies to any hour of the day, any time of the year.
The winter parking ordinance does not apply to private streets (marked with a blue street sign), only to public roadways.
Residents who violate the ordinance will be issued an administrative citation.
Questions about the winter parking regulations or snow removal procedures may be directed to the Public Works Department, (651) 714-3720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
