Reasons for Calendar Parking
Calendar parking restrictions are implemented and enforced by the city for several reasons, a few of which are listed in the following:

The city's street sweeper cleans the streets from approximately 4:00 am until 12:00 noon, Monday through Friday. Sweeper hours are expanded during the spring and summer months, when the presence of sand, gravel, and other undesirable debris is greatest.

Similarly, during the winter months, snow removal and sanding operations take place between 2:00 am and 10:00 am. Often times, depending on the amount of snowfall and extent of icy roads, hours of operation for snow removal and street sanding are expanded to meet winter's demands.

To facilitate access to the roadway for the street sweeper as well as for snow plows and sander trucks, the city implemented and enforces calendar parking. The Public Works Department depends on automobile owner's compliance with calendar parking in order to facilitate our street maintenance tasks.
