Winter Parking Ban Reminder

Winter parking is now being enforced. Here are key points to remember:
• Parking Ban Basics: The Winter/Overnight Parking Ban runs November 1 through April 30, and is in effect from 2 a.m. until 6 a.m., regardless of weather. This ban includes all City of Negaunee roads, alleys, city-maintained sidewalks and city-maintained parking lots. For details, see Chapter 686 (686.05)
• City Right-of-Way: During the overnight parking ban months, drivers will not be ticketed for parking on City rights-of-way as long as no traffic hazard or other negative impact situation is being created. However, be advised that if you choose to park on City right-of-way during these months, you do so at your own risk and the City of Negaunee is not liable for any damages. For full details, see Chapter 692 (692.03L)
• Make a phone call to save $50: If your vehicle breaks down and is at risk for violating the overnight parking ban, notify the Negaunee Police Department at 475-4154 immediately, or, if the break-down happens after business hours, call Central Dispatch at 475-9912, leave your name and number and ask for an officer to contact you. Leaving a message is not appropriate as the officer on patrol may issue the ticket prior to receiving that message. You must speak directly with an officer to avoid being cited.
