City of Alpena reminds residents overnight parking on streets will be prohibited for the winter

ALPENA, Mich — Winter weather is on the way and the City of Alpena is reminding residents to keep vehicles off the streets in the coming months.

Vehicles cannot be parked on city streets between 3 a.m. And 6 a.m. from Nov. 1 to April 1. The city says this is because utility vehicles need to be able to thoroughly plow the roads. Vehicles parked on the streets will be ticketed, and impounded at the owners expense. Parking in city lots is also not permitted overnight. In extenuating circumstances, parking on the street may be permitted, but residents will need to contact police ahead of time. Unless permission is given, vehicles will be ticketed and possibly towed.
