Any vehicle parked overnight on any city street for more than one hour between the hours of Midnight and 6 a.m. will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense.
Residents can park overnight in the municipal parking lots at Cross Street, Beaver Street and Washington Street. The following are special instructions for residents who use the municipal parking lots to park their vehicles overnight. In order to facilitate for winter snow removal, please park in municipal lots as follows:
Beaver Street parking lot: Park vehicles on the side of the lot next to the Opera House building. On the day after a snow storm, please park vehicles on the Court House side of the parking lot.
Cross Street parking lot: Park vehicles in the middle of the parking lot overnight and during snow storms. On the day after a snow storm, please park vehicles around the outside edge of the parking lot.

The "day after a storm" means: if a storm starts on November 1st, and ends on November 2nd before 4 p.m. vehicles will need to be parked in the designated areas for the day after a storm. Conversely if a storm starts on November 1st, and ends after 4 p.m. on November 2nd, vehicles should remain in the areas designated for parking normally and during storms.
