The Marinette Police Department would like to remind area residents that the overnight parking ban will go into effect on December 1, 2021 at 1:00 am. The ordinance does not state that it must snow before the ordinance can be enforced. It states that there will be NO overnight parking on City of Marinette streets or City of Marinette owned property (including parking lots) from the hours of 1:00 am through 7:00 am starting December 1st through April 1st. The ordinance is written in this manner so that in the event of snow overnight, vehicles will already be removed. Parking on the tree lawn is not an acceptable alternative unless a permit is obtained from the Civic Affairs, Cemetery, Traffic & Lights Committee. The property owner would need to demonstrate that not allowing the property owner to utilize the tree lawn or public right-of-way would constitute a hardship and allowing said parking does not constitute a traffic hazard. Residents are also reminded that overnight parking violation penalties are $40.00 and they double if not paid within 72 hours. Overnight parking tickets will be issued beginning December 1st at 1:00 am. All citizens are urged to find parking accommodations if they have not already done so.
