Once a winter storm emergency has been declared, an on-street parking ban will be put into effect on all city streets and all vehicles must be moved off the street at that time. The parking ban will be posted on local radio and television broadcasts and on the city website at www.pawtucketri.com. You can also call the police station at 401-727-9100 and dial ext. 888 on the auto attendant to check on a parking ban. To Report a Storm Issue, email: email@example.com.
During snow parking bans, parking will be available in municipal lots throughout the city: Click Here for Alternative Parking Locations
Vehicle removal: All vehicle owners are required by city ordinance to move their vehicles out of the designated municipal parking areas within two hours of a parking ban being lifted or face towing and a fine of $100.
Sidewalk snow removal required: According to city ordinance, the owner, occupant or other responsible person shall have snow and ice removed from a sidewalk intended for pedestrians not later than the first 12 hours of daylight after the end of a snowstorm. Violations are subject to fines beginning at $25 for a first offense.
