Police advise residents to drive safely, follow parking restrictions

DELTA COUNTY — Police agencies in Delta County are seeking cooperation and assistance from the public with regards to winter parking and reminding residents to drive safely.

Given the early-season snowfall expected Monday afternoon, both the Escanaba Department of Public Safety and Gladstone Public Safety Department are asking residents to observe winter parking restrictions in order to maintain efficiency of law enforcement, firefighting, and snow removal operations.

Winter parking restrictions officially take effect in both jurisdictions on December 1st, but police ask that the public follow the restrictions during this upcoming snowfall and any upcoming snow events through that date.

Escanaba Public Safety would also like to advise those traveling to allow for additional time to reach their destinations over the next few days. Several accidents are already being reported with roads becoming snow-covered in Delta County.
