Starting on Sunday Algoma will be enforcing the overnight parking ban of vehicles on the streets. The ordinance is in place to give the street department the ability to clear snowfall off the roadways safely and quickly. Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy says his crews can get the job done when everyone complies with the 2 am- 5 am no parking law.
The overnight parking ordinance is in effect through March 31. Algoma Police Chief Randy Remiker says that for the first two weeks officers will leave notes on vehicles reminding residents of the need to keep their vehicles off the street overnight. After that, citations and possible towing of the vehicle at the owner's expense may occur. Remiker notes that parking citations are $25 and double to $50 if not paid within three days. The City of Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee will enforce overnight parking starting on December 1.
