The City of Rockland is declaring a snow emergency parking ban. This ban prohibits parking of any vehicles upon all of the city streets, or municipal parking lots from 9 a.m., Wednesday, March 7, through 6 a.m., Thursday, March 8.  

During this timeframe, it shall be unlawful for any person to park or cause to be parked, or permit to remain parked, or to abandon or to leave unattended, any vehicle of any kind or description upon streets; provided, however, that vehicles may be parked for a period of not longer than ten minutes for actual loading or unloading of property, and provided further that no other ordinance restricting parking is thereby violated.

Vehicles found in non-compliance with this Snow Emergency parking ban, which interfere with the operation of any snow removal equipment or any emergency vehicle will be ticketed and towed. The City Manager or Director of Public Works shall effect such removal of vehicles through the Police Department of the city and the cost of removal and storage of any vehicle shall be paid by the owner or operator thereof.
