The heavy snowfall overnight prompted St. Louis Park to declare a parking ban in effect just before noon Tuesday.
The city declares a parking ban as soon as snow accumulation reaches three inches—whatever time of day that happens to be.
On-street parking is prohibited any time during a parking ban until streets have been plowed curb to curb. Owners of cars that are on city streets after 3 inches of snow fall can receive a:
- Minimum $30 parking ticket,
- $115.00 minimum towing charge plus administrative fees (with additional charges if the vehicle must be shoveled out or weighs more than a ton) and
- $30 storage fee per day.
Drivers whose vehicles are towed can call Bobby & Steve's at(952) 944-1690 to find out where to pick up their vehicles.
