No overnight parking on city streets
“We know that snow clearing is important to our residents and the parking restriction during the winter months allows our snow plows to get through and clear the roads without obstructions before morning travelers get on their way,” explained Rod Porter, East Maintenance Area Manager.
Overnight parking in municipal parking lots is also prohibited from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. from November 1, 2015 to April 30, 2016 by municipal by-law unless covered by a permit in Lindsay.
The hours for prohibited parking in the following downtown areas are from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. – in Lindsay on Kent St. W. from Lindsay St. to Victoria Ave.; in Bobcaygeon on Bolton St. from King St. to Canal St.; in Fenelon Falls on Colborne St. from Water St. to Bond St.; on May St. from Water St. to Francis St, on Francis St. West from Colborne St. to May St., and in Omemee on King St. from Queen St. to Sturgeon Rd.
“We will be actively monitoring the situation and responding on a complaint basis to make people aware they can’t park on City streets overnight,” said Aaron Sloan, Manager of Municipal Law Enforcement. “Enforcement is ongoing from November 1 and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation in helping to keep vehicles off City streets overnight to assist with snow clearing.”
If a vehicle is left parked on a city street or in a municipal parking lot it may be impounded in accordance with the Highway Traffic Act and fines may be levied. The by-law is enforced by the Municipal Law Enforcement Officers and Officers of the Kawartha Lakes Police Service.
