SHELTON — The Public Works Department and Shelton police are implementing the city’s snow/winter storm emergency parking ban this weekend.

The parking ban will begin Friday at 6 p.m. and run through Monday at 6 a.m.

The move comes as the state prepares for a major nor’easter, which could bring a foot of snow and gusty winds throughout the day Saturday. The storm track remains in question, but forecasters agree that there will be plowable snow.

“On odd-numbered days, parking shall be permitted during the aforementioned hours, only on the odd-numbered side of the street,” DPW Superintendent Brian Roach said. “On even-numbered days, parking shall be permitted during the aforementioned hours only on the even-numbered side of the street.

“Any vehicles towed shall be stored at the police-authorized towing company address,” Roach added. “The fees for towing are regulated by the State of Connecticut.”

The city will also be closing the Shelton Transfer Station on Saturday and reopening on Monday.
