TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Town of Tonawanda and Village of Kenmore lifted their overnight parking bans and Cheektowaga followed on Monday.
The bans are put in place every winter to allow for snow removal from the roads.
The Kenmore Police Department posted the update on Facebook Wednesday afternoon.
“Now don’t go celebrating too much and please don’t everyone go move your car at the same time,” they wrote. “Watch out for your neighbor’s car who is already parked in the prime spot. Thanks for another year of cooperating as much as most of you did…you can now park overnight in the street..bring on the Memorial Day parade.”
Tonawanda followed suit Thursday morning.
“It took a while longer this year due to Mother Nature but effective immediately, the Tonawanda Town Board is lifting overnight winter parking restrictions in the Town,” Supervisor Joseph Emminger said in a release. “Enjoy spring and the slightly warmer temperatures headed our way. We’ve all earned it!“
And Friday morning, the Town of Cheektowaga shared their update, saying the ban will be over effective Monday, just after Midnight.
“In the unlikely event of a significant snow event, residents are asked to please use common
sense by removing vehicles from the street allowing plows to get down the street for efficient snow removal,” a message from the town read.
