The City of Lockport is reminding residents they should park on the street during a winter snow event. Parked cars are an obstacle to snow plows, and plowing around parked cars leaves large areas of snow and ice on the roadway. Park vehicles in your driveway to help facilitate safe removal of snow on your street. Due to the number of streets to be cleared across the City, crews will not return to streets where cars were previously parked.
Once there is 2 inches of accumulation, the Snow Parking Ban goes into effect. Property owners are responsible for snow removal on public sidewalks adjacent to their homes.
