24-Hour Parking Limits

No person shall permit any motor vehicle owned by him/her or under his/her control to remain standing or parked in any village street or a village-owned or -operated parking lot in excess of 24 consecutive hours.

Alternate Side Parking

Alternate side parking is in effect November 15 through March 15. During this period, overnight parking is permitted only on the even-numbered side of the street on the nights bearing an even calendar date during the hours from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., and on the odd-numbered side of the street on those nights bearing an odd calendar date during the hours from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. on any street in the Village, except Main Street where there is no overnight parking. There are occasions which require parking on the odd-numbered side of the street on consecutive nights (such as December 31–January 1). Motorists who fail to observe these regulations may be fined, and their vehicles may be towed.

Snow Emergencies

Whenever snow falls during any 24 hour period to a depth of three (3) inches or more, or freezing rain or snow conditions result in an accumulation of 1/8 inch of ice or more on Village rights-of-way, such winter storm is deemed to constitute a serious public hazard impairing public transportation and public safety, and a winter storm emergency declaration may be issued by the Village and will be announced on the Village website and local television news outlets. A winter storm emergency will remain in effect for forty-eight (48) hours from the time it is declared, or until such time as snowplowing or salting operations have been declared completed.

When a winter storm emergency has been declared, no person may park, stop, or leave standing any vehicle upon any public street, highway, or alley within the Village for the duration of the snow emergency, except for vehicles loading or unloading passengers or property for a period not to exceed 15 minutes and provided that no other parking restriction is violated thereby. This paragraph does not apply to physicians on emergency calls.

Any vehicle parked on any public right-of-way during a winter storm emergency may be towed by or at the direction of any law enforcement officer, or by or at the direction of any snow plow operator who has been directed by a law enforcement officer to tow any vehicles that impede plowing or deicing. A towed vehicle’s owner shall be responsible for the costs of towing and storing such vehicle. Additionally or in lieu of towing, the vehicle’s owner may be cited, with all towing and storage costs, if any, added to the forfeiture.

Abandoned Vehicles

No person shall leave unattended any motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer, or mobile home on any public street or highway or public or private property, for such time and under such circumstances as to cause the vehicle to reasonably appear to have been abandoned. When any such vehicle has been left unattended on any village street or highway or on any public or private property within the village for more than 48 hours, the vehicle is deemed abandoned and constitutes a public nuisance.
