That time of year is right around the corner. Winter Parking rules go into effect November 15th. The police and street department will be closely monitoring the weather before we decide to start actually issuing citations.
The Winter Parking Ordinance is covered by the Chippewa Falls Municipal Code 7.09(3)(c):
No person shall park or leave parked any vehicle on any street, alley, highway or any right of way area, including any boulevard area, in the City for more than 30 minutes between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. from November 15 of one year to March 31 of the following year. The Street and Utility Maintenance Manager and the Chief of Police, by mutual agreement, are authorized to suspend enforcement of this subsection prior to April 1 if weather permits. From April 1 through November 14 of each year, this paragraph shall be effective only in the downtown area as defined in subparagraph (a)2. of this section. This paragraph shall not prohibit necessary parking by licensed health professionals on professional calls or restrict parking on boulevard areas where otherwise permitted such as by a street use permit.
