Street parking prohibited when snow flies

    The village of Coal City has a street cleaning and snow removal policy and failure to comply will find drivers digging into their wallets.
    Municipal code prohibits street side parking when a roadway is being cleared of snow. Specifically, in the event of a two inch of more snowfall vehicles must be removed from streets in a timely manner.
    Any vehicle continuously parked on a village street in excess of 48 hours after a two inch or more snow fall will be issued a village P-ticket. The ordinance approved by the village board back in 2010 also allows the municipality to tow a vehicle if it remains parked after a ticket has been issued.
    During times of snow removal the village’s restrictions on parking on or across a sidewalk will not be enforced in residential areas, thus giving residents use of the full length of a driveway.
