EVEN AND ODD: Residents should follow Shelton's winter parking restrictions

Shelton residents are being reminded to follow the city’s winter parking restrictions.

From the start of December to the end of March, alternate side of the street parking is required from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m.

On odd-numbered days, parking is permitted on the odd-numbered side of the street; and on even-numbered days, parking is allowed on the even-numbered side of the street.

No parking shall be permitted on any street where the parking interferes with snow removal.

If 'snow emergency' is declared

When the mayor declares a “snow emergency,” no on-street parking shall be allowed if off-street parking is available. Cars may be towed and a fine levied, in addition to the cost of towing.

The purpose of this ordinance is to assure that public roadways can be cleared to allow for safe passage of all emergency vehicles and the general public.

Residents also are reminded that property owners are responsible for the removal of snow and ice from the public sidewalks abutting their property.
