No Parking on City Streets

As a reminder, there is no parking on City Streets from 2 AM to 5 AM between December 1st and March 31st. This is to allow for effective snow clearing operations. Also, all City Streets are snow routes, which means no parking is permitted after a 2 inch snowfall until streets are cleared.
