The Sartell Police Department is reminding residents about the city’s no-parking ordinance, which took effect Nov. 1 and will go through March.
During those months, no parking is allowed from the hours of 1 to 7 a.m. on any city street, alley or thoroughfare.
The ordinance is in effect and will be enforced at all times, even during periods where there is no or very little snow.
Vehicles in violation of the ordinance may be ticketed and towed, with expenses to be paid by the vehicle’s owner.
The fine for violating the ordinance is $25, with an extra $5 if it is not paid within 48 hours.
Reminders about the no-parking ordinance have been put on the city’s electronic bulletin boards, the city’s website, its promo pack and informational packets given to new residents. Signs are also posted at the entrances to the city limits.
“We ask homeowners and renters within the city inform guests and family members who may be staying or visiting at your home about the winter parking rules,” said Sartell Police Chief Jim Hughes. “We want to be pro-active in letting the public know about our winter parking rules.”
