Pittsfield begins winter parking ban December 1
PITTSFIELD >> The Pittsfield Police Department is reminding city residents and visitors that winter overnight parking restrictions take effect on Dec. 1.
Parking will be prohibited on any city street, sidewalk, or tree-line between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m.
This year, the fine for violating the restriction has increased to $50.
In the event a snow emergency is declared, any vehicle obstructing snowplowing operations will be towed at the owner's expense.
During a snow emergency, vehicles may be parked in the three-hour public parking areas of the Summer Street and McKay Street parking garages between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m.
No vehicles will be permitted to park in any open, municipal parking lot between 12 and 7 a.m., so the lots may be properly plowed and sanded.
