Overnight parking will be permitted on the streets where alternate side of the street parking is permitted.
Motorists are cautioned to follow the posted signs and ensure they are on the proper side of the street to avoid being ticketed (Alternate Side Parking is for a 24 hour period).

The Winter Parking Weather Alert will be rescinded once snow removal operations are completed, not at the conclusion of the storm.
