The Town of Cobourg reminds everyone that winter-parking regulations have come into effect as of Nov. 1.
This means Bylaw 080-2014 s. 34 now applies in governing the parking of motor vehicles so as not to impede weather-related clearing operations between 2 and 7 a.m. Through March 31. This includes not parking on a list of designated collector and arterial roads as well as all roads listed within Schedule O of the bylaw.
The section also authorizes the Chief of Police or his designate to have any vehicle moved (towed away and impounded if necessary) if it is parked on one of these roads or highways. Though residents are still allowed to park on all residential streets during this period of restriction, they are also subject to the bylaw if their vehicle is parked in such a way as to obstruct snow-clearing operations.
“The Town of Cobourg appreciates the efforts of its citizens in parking off-street to allow for safe and efficient snow-removal operations during the winter season,” the town's press release said.
“It is especially important that collector and arterial roads (major roads) remain clear for safe passage.”
For more information contact the public-works department at 905-372-9971 or the legislative-services department at 905-372-4301.
