MILWAUKEE — Enforcement of night time parking rules will restart on Nov. 2 according to a press release from the city.

As leaves begin to clog gutters and snow will soon be needing removal, the city is lifting the suspension on Nov. 2. Mayor Tom Barrett explains that because of a lack of alternate side parking, because nighttime regulations are not being enforced, crews are having trouble accessing piles of leaves left on the rims of streets by residents.

Before the regulations go into effect, the city will issue warnings to prepare people.

On Nov. 2 drivers will be required to have a permit to park from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Parking regulations also require drivers to abide by alternate-side parking, which the mayor argues allows the city to carry out leaf collections, as well as snow removal and street sweeping.

Night parking permits are $55 annually, or $20 per 4 month period. For more information or to purchase a permit, click here.

All parking rules were suspended on March 19 to accommodate people at home due to coronavirus related reasons.
