Winter Parking Reminder As winter has progressed we find it necessary to remind our residents about the parking ordinance. This is a public safety issue for all of us. If snow and ice are not removed from the roadway, it makes rendering emergency services more difficult. To insure we are able to respond in the safest and most efficent manner if snow is in the forecast have your vehicle removed from the street. The ordinance is shown below. 11-1311. PARKING DURING SNOW FALL: It shall be unlawful to park any motor vehicle on any street in the village when snow shall have accumulated to the depth of two inches (2") or more on such street from immediately following said accumulation until the removal of the same.
