Winter Parking Ban

Amherst Chief of Police Scott P. Livingstone announced today that the overnight parking ban will be in effect from December 1, 2012, to April 1, 2013.  During this time period no overnight parking is allowed on any town streets from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.  Vehicles left on streets between these hours are subject to be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.  Parking is allowed in the meter lot on Pray Street and also on the lower level of the parking garage.  Vehicles must be removed by 7:00 a.m.

 Amherst Police Department policy is as follows:

             -First offense results in a warning

            -Second offense results in a ticket

-Third offense results in a ticket and towing of the vehicle regardless of the weather conditions

Should a snowstorm require plowing, the warning provisions listed above are not in effect.  Vehicles will be towed to assist the Department of Public Works in removal of snow.

 For further information, contact Captain Christopher G. Pronovost at (413) 259-3000.
