A request to reduce the hours of the city’s overnight parking ban during winter months would cause delays and potential safety hazards, says a report headed to the operations committee Oct. 21.

In March, Ward 11 Coun. Bill Leduc asked for the report, arguing that since all snow removal doesn’t happen overnight, reducing the ban from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., rather than midnight to 7 a.m. wouldn’t have a big impact on snow removal, and would reduce impaired driving for people downtown.

Currently in effect from Dec. 1 until the end of March, the ban is enforced across the city through $75 tickets, and the possibility your vehicle will be towed to make room for plows. Commercial vehicles and trailers are banned from parking from 9 p.m. until midnight.
