City Hall, 215 Church Avenue P.O. Box 1130 Oshkosh, WI 54903-1130 http://www.ci.oshkosh.wi.us For more information, contact: Jake Timm, Media Services Coordinator (920) 236-5261; jtimm@ci.oshkosh.wi.us ****NO Parking on Amherst Ave. April 19th, 2018**** Amherst Avenue designated “No Parking” zone on Thursday, April 19 for snow removal OSHKOSH, Wis. April 18, 2018 – In accordance with Section 27-34 of the Municipal Code of the City of Oshkosh, the following streets have been designated as “No Parking” to allow for the removal of snow tomorrow, April 19, 2018: Amherst Avenue from Elmwood Avenue to Jackson Street. Temporary “No Parking” signs will be installed this evening, with snow removal operations expected to commence about 6 a.m. on Thursday, April 19, 2018. Per Section 27-34 (B) of the Municipal Code, any vehicles remaining parked on this street after 6 a.m. are subject to being towed to facilitate the removal of the snow. Earlier designations for no parking on Prospect Avenue and Scott Avenue have been lifted. With the record snowfall amounts over the weekend, it is important that we have the street free of parked vehicles to allow snow removal staff ample space to clear the street. Parking is at a premium in this area, which is why parked cars must be relocated in order to remove the snow that is currently causing a serious public hazard by impairing the movement of vehicular traffic in this area. The Public Works Department will continue to monitor street and traffic conditions on other streets in this area, and may have future parking restrictions to continue to allow Streets Division crews space to clear snow and get parking restored. For more information, please contact the Department of Public Works main office at (920) 236-5065 or the Streets Division at (920) 232-5380. # # #
