Parking restrictions and safety reminders for the snow

Echo Hose Hook & Ladder want to remind residents: "With the snow beginning to pile up and much more on the way we again ask everyone with a fire hydrant on their property to assist us by clearing them out from snow. Every second counts in an emergency," they posted on their Facebook page.


From now to March in Shelton, parking from midnight to 6 a.m. is restricted to one side of city streets.

In odd-numbered months, residents must park on the odd side of the street from midnight to 6 a.m. In even-numbered months, residents must park on the even side of the street.

In the event of a declared snow emergency, there shall be no on-street parking in sections of the city where access to off-street parking is available including driveways and parking lots, unless otherwise exempted by the police department.

The fine for violating winter parking rules is $25 for the first violation and $50 for repeat violations.
