A Parking Ban: 8PM, 3/3/19 to 9AM, 3/4/19

A parking ban will be in effect from 8:00PM, Sunday, March 3, 2019 and will remain in effect until 9:00AM, Monday, March 4, 2019. Forecasters are calling for 4-7 inches of snow.
  
During a Parking Ban no on-street parking is allowed so that Public Works crews can remove snow from curb-to-curb. Cars left on the road create a safety hazard for all concerned. The owner will receive a fine and the car may be towed.

Please take this parking ban seriously and make safe plans for your vehicle. 

Off-Street Parking
Off-street neighborhood municipal lots are open for your convenience. Pay-to-park fees will apply at municipal center parking lots and parking garages.
 
If you use a free municipal or school lot, your vehicle must be removed by  6:00 AM on Monday, March 4, 2019, so crews can safely and effectively clear those parking lots. Vehicles left in the lot after that time will be towed.
 
We ask that cars park close together, meaning do not leave parking spaces between cars. This helps DPW clear snow efficiently. 

Do not park on a street that is still snow covered or not cleared.

Enforcement
The West Hartford Police Department will be proactively assisting the Department of Public Works to ensure that the roads are clear of illegally parked vehicles. Cars in violation of the snow ban will be ticketed and towed.

Trash Collection
Trash and recyclables will be collected as scheduled. If possible, bring your cart in as soon as it is emptied to limit obstruction for the plow truck driver.

Expect normal winter weather delays.

Overnight Parking Omit disabled
The on-line overnight parking omit system will be disabled beginning at 8:00PM on Sunday, March 3, 2019 until 9:00AM on Monday, March 4, 2019.

Sidewalks
Per Town ordinance, West Hartford property owners are responsible for removing snow and ice from the sidewalk along their property line within 12 hours after the storm or sunrise, whichever is later, and keeping them clear of snow and ice.

Heavily used sidewalks near schools and public buildings, and the commercial areas are particularly important. To report a snow clearing violation, please call the West Hartford Police Department at (860) 523-5203.

Hydrants
Please help the Fire Department and protect neighboring properties by shoveling around fire hydrants.
 
Check your neighbors
Please check on your neighbors, especially those who are elderly or disabled, to make sure they are OK and offer a helping hand. If something doesn't seem right, please call WHPD at (860) 523-5203.
 

Thank you for your cooperation. Be safe.
