The City would like to remind all residents that overnight parking restrictions will come into effect on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. As per Traffic By-law No. 2009-075, parking is prohibited on all City streets and any non-designated municipal lots between 1:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. from December 1 until March 31.

Vehicle owners found in violation of this by-law are subject to a parking fine and/or having their vehicle towed at the owner’s expense. We encourage City residents to advise your overnight guests of this Traffic By-law during the winter season.

Under the Highway Traffic Act, residents are not allowed to deposit snow on the roadway. When clearing snow, pile it on your property - do not shovel it onto the sidewalk, onto the road, or across the road. This is dangerous because it covers the traction control applied to the roadway, which may cause motorists to lose control when driving through the snow pile.

Overnight parking passes can be purchased at City Hall for $20.00 per month or $5.00 per night. These passes are valid in the overnight parking areas of Municipal Lot 5 (800 block of 3rd Avenue East) and Municipal Lot 9 (700 block of 1st Avenue East). The City retains three private contractors along with City crews to maintain the parking lots during the winter control season, and maintenance crews may start as early as 1:00 a.m. to clear parking lots.
