Community Connection Alternate-Side Parking
by Police Chief Frank Pomeroy
The City of Winona Alternate-Side Parking Ordinance is in effect from November 1 at 1:00a.m. and stays in effect until April 1. This time frame allows the City Street Department ample time to clean the fall leaves from the streets and the snowfall from the streets to allow for safe passage of vehicles.
The City Council raised the fine for Alternate-Side Parking tickets to $25.00 two yearsago and that fine will be the same this year. There were a considerable number of citations written in the first 15 days of November two years ago. At that time we chose not to give warnings because people were not moving their vehicles, so therefore the Street Department was not able to effectively clean the leaves from the streets. Also, the warnings were being taken off of the vehicles and thrown into the street. The Police Department will begin ticketing vehicles on November 1, at 1:00a.m.
THE ALTERNATE-SIDE PARKING ORDINANCE READS AS FOLLOWS:
No person shall stop, park or leave standing any vehicle on any street or in Municipal Parking Lot 1 and 3 on any days from November 1, to April 1, between the hours of 1:00a.m. and 6:30a.m., except as herein provided:
- On even numbered calendar dates vehicles may be parked on the near side of the street adjacent to lots and houses which have been assigned even numbers in accordance with Section 25.06 of this code;
- On odd numbered calendar dates vehicles may be parked on the near side of the street adjacent to lots and houses which have been assigned odd numbers in accordance with Section 25.06 of this code;
