On the odd days of the month, you park on the odd-numbered side of the street; and on even days of the month, you park on the even-numbered side of the street. Odd and even days will be considered as beginning between 6:00A.M. and 8:00 A.M. You will not be ticketed between 6:00A.M. and 8:00 A.M. Odd and even numbered sides of the street refer to the usual residence and building address numbers.

If this release is received prior to a snow event it has been issued in anticipation of forecasted weather.

Please be a good neighbor and shovel your sidewalk after the plows have completed clearing the streets. It helps your neighbors, your postal carrier, the children who walk to school and it shows that you care about your community.
