Mahtomedi's winter parking regulations go into effect each year from November 1st through April 1st. The parking restrictions are designed to facilitate effective plowing during the snow season and prohibit parking of motor vehicles on public streets and alleys from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. City Ordinance also prohibits onstreet parking anytime three or more inches of snow has accumulated until after the street has been plowed to full width. The three inch guideline applies to any hour of the day and any time of the year. Vehicles parked on the street present a hazard because they can be difficult for plow operators to see and they also prevent clearing the street to full width. With the narrow width of some of the streets in the City, parked vehicles can delay snowplowing operations because the plow truck cannot get by the parked vehicle. Residents who violate the ordinance may be ticketed and/or have their vehicle towed. Be sure to inform relatives or guests who may visit your home about the winter parking restrictions so they can avoid being cited or towed. Questions about the winter parking regulations or snow and ice control procedures may be directed to the Public Works Department at 651-773-9730.
