Now that winter is here, we thought it would be a good idea to send out a reminder of our Winter Parking Ordinance. Here’s what the ordinance says:
“No person shall park a vehicle on either side of any town or county highway within the Town of Binghamton between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. on each day from December 1 to the following April 1, inclusive.
No owner or operator of a motor vehicle shall park the same unattended on any town street or highway within the Town of Binghamton following any snowfall of two inches or more until said street or highway shall have been plowed by or at the direction of the Highway Department of the Town of Binghamton. Any two-inch snowfall shall, for the purposes of this section, constitute a snow emergency.
Failure by the operator of a motor vehicle to obey any of the signs erected pursuant to these provisions shall be construed as a violation and punishable upon conviction by a fine.”
First offense: $25
Second offense: $50
(The fine is issued to the registrant of the vehicle in violation.)
Thanks, everyone, for your cooperation.
