The Town of Prescott is reminding people that overnight parking restrictions are now in effect. Parking is not permitted on any road between midnight and 7:00am. The restrictions will be in place until April 1.

Manager of Building and Bylaw Services Shawn Merriman says the reason is so the Public Works Department can do snow removal while weather events are occurring and clean up on other nights.

Fines will be issued to people who break the rules.

Merriman says the fine is $20 for overnight parking, but if your vehicles has to be towed, the cost goes up. He says it could add up to $150 by the time fines and towing services are paid.

For more information, contact Merriman directly by calling 613-925-2812 ext. 6206.
