Alternate Side Parking
A reminder that the alternate side parking ordinance in Winona goes into effect this Thursday, November 15th. The start of the ordinance enforcement is two weeks later than in past years and the hours of enforcement have been expanded by one hour to midnight to 6:30 a.m.
That means staring on Thursday vehicles must be parked on the even side of the street on even-numbered dates, and on the odd side of the street on the odd-numbered dates...but only between midnight and 6:30 a.m.
Violators will receive a 25-dollar citation and, if there is a snow emergency, the vehicle will also be towed. The ordinance will now be enforced through March 15th, two weeks shorter than in past years.
The City of Winona is also reminding residents that another ordinance requires property owners to remove snow from city sidewalks within the first 12 hours of daytime after snow ceases to fall. And if there is snow or ice on city sidewalks that cannot be removed, property owners are given 24 hours to place sand or chemicals on the sidewalk.
