Preston Police Chief Val Sparrow is reminding residents that parking any type of vehicle on city streets during winter months is prohibited because it impairs snow removal efforts.
Beginning Thursday, Nov. 1, and running through March 31, parking vehicles, RVs or trailers on any city street in Preston is prohibited from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. according to posted signs, said Sparrow.
The ordinance states, “It is unlawful for any person to park a vehicle on any city street within the City of Preston, Idaho, between Nov. 1 and March 31 of each and every year.”
Sparrow said snowplow drivers need to have the roads clear of vehicles and trailers during those hours to facilitate snow removal. Our officers have been instructed to be out enforcing this ordinance after Nov. 1.
“We request the public’s assistance in keeping the streets clear of vehicles and trailers,” said Sparrow.
In a related matter, city crews are busy cleaning fall leaves out of storm drains and gutters. Public works director John Balls is asking residents to assist crews and keep leaves out of gutters and storm drains clear of debris.
“With leaves starting to fall, we are busy trying to keep drains clear. But we can’t be everywhere at once. We’re doing our best to sweep up leaves, but they just keep falling. We are asking residents to avoid raking leaves into the gutters.
