The winter parking ban is now in effect until April 1 between the hours of 1 and 6 a.m. for all streets in Lee.

Violations of this ban may result in a $20 fine for parking in prohibited areas, or a $50 fine for impeding snow removal. In addition, if the vehicle is impeding snow removal, it may be towed at the owner's expense.

The municipal parking lot off Railroad Street, across from Hyde Place, is approved for use as "off street parking" for all residents living at Hyde Place and in the Main Street apartments.

However, those vehicles must be moved by 8 a.m. to allow the Department of Public Works to plow the parking lot.

Persons having questions about off street parking or the Winter off-street parking ban can call the Lee Police Department at 243-5530.
