What are the winter parking regulations?

Mahtomedi's winter parking regulations commence on November 1 and run through April 1. During this time, no vehicles may park on any street from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Parking is also restricted at any time that snow accumulation equals or exceeds 3 inches until the street is cleared of snow.

  • Snow or ice should not be shoveled, blown or plowed into any street that has already been plowed.
  • Due to the size and force of the snowplow, it is important to keep items, such as vehicles, trash containers, etc. at least 3 feet back from the edge of the street.
  • For safety reasons, children should be discouraged from tunneling into or sliding from the snow piles that accumulate at the end of driveways or in cul-de-sacs.
  • Individual residential mailboxes damaged during removal will not be authorized for repair unless there is physical evidence that the snow removal vehicle is deemed to have hit the mailbox, the City will reimburse the property owner up to $75 with receipts. If the mailbox is damaged due to the weight of the snow built up on the boulevard, it is the responsibility of the property owner to repair or replace the mailbox.
  • If a snow plow causes sod damage, in the spring, the city will either provide replacement sod to be installed by the property owner, or the city will repair the area with topsoil and seed.
