Winter Parking Ban begins on November 1st

MARQUETTE — The Marquette City Police wants to remind all citizens and visitors in the City of Marquette that the Winter Parking Ban will begin on November 1st and will be in effect until April 1st.

There is no parking on any city street between the hours of 1:00 AM and 6:00 AM. The Winter Parking Ban carries a fine of $75.00 and a vehicle could also be towed if it is impeding snow removal efforts by the plow crews. Vehicle owners should be making off-street parking arrangements for their vehicles for the winter season as soon as possible. There are also other fines for violations that are incorporated with the parking ban as well.

“Front yard parking need to be granted permission through community development and that violation is a $50.00 fine if that permission is not given,” explained Cpt. Mike Laurila, Marquette City Police. “Right-of-way parking permission is granted through the police department. If there is a violation of right-of-way parking that will also be a $50.00 fine.”
