What will the police department do….

1. If a street or a section of a street is identified as “interfering with the free flow of traffic or creating a hazard”, we will declare that street, or a section of that street, as an emergency no parking zone.

2. Signs will be posted and an attempt will be made to notify vehicle owners that the area is declared as an emergency no parking zone. This is in accordance with Village Code 108-17(a).

3. If a vehicle is not moved from an emergency no parking zone, it will be ticketed and impounded.

4. Once a street or section of that street has been declared an emergency no parking zone, we will notify the Village Department of Public Works. As soon as they clear the street identified as an emergency no parking zone, the declaration will be lifted and the signs removed.

5. An updated list of streets declared as emergency no parking will be posted on this site.
