Winter parking ban in effect

I t’s snowing, and you know what that means.

Don’t keep your car parked on village streets overnight from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Police gave out 10 tickets last week to residents who left their vehicles on the streets, but it wasn’t due to the snow.

Granville’s winter parking ban takes effect from Nov. 1 through April 15—that means a car that’s not in a lot or driveway during that time period is waiting to be ticketed, snow or no snow.

During winter, village snowplows need to be able to salt, sand and plow roads before, during and after storms, a task that requires clear streets.

Sergeant Dave Williams said ample space for parking is for the most part not a problem, although some residents might have to walk a little. Additionally, the slew of tickets that were issued were only half as many as is typical for the season’s first storm.

And while they aren’t very expensive, at $25 dollars a pop for guilty pleas, the tickets can add up.
