Winter parking concerns have always been an issue within the three cities. There is a City Ordinance for each jurisdiction, which generally prohibits parking over 24 hours on any city street or alleyway. There are also provisions for prohibited parking on certain streets during the late night/early morning hours.
The city “right of way” is generally considered the entire area between telephone poles and a city street or alley.
