Residentes con preguntas pueden contactar al Departamento de Policía de Hartford al (860) 757-4000. El costo para recuperar un vehículo remolcado es $93,59 y se emitirá una multa adicional de $99,00.
The parking ban begins at 4 on Saturday afternoon and ends at noon on Sunday.
Mayor Segarra, in a press release issued through spokeswoman Maribel La Luz, says: “Side streets are narrow because of the continuous snow fall we’ve had and our trucks need to be able to pass through. We are [sic] airing on the side of caution. The City will resume its snow clearing efforts after we get through this storm but for now, we’re asking our residents to plan ahead. Please move your cars so we can plow safely.”
Motorists who do not have off street parking could (1) ask to park in driveways belonging to friends and neighbors, or (2) park in any number of lots available during the parking ban.
These lots include those at public schools, along with the following: Morgan Street Garage, 2 Holcomb Street, Keney Park entrance lot at Ridgefield, KDA Center lot at Naugatuck Street, Pope Park Rec Center lot, Metzner Center lot on Franklin Avenue, Colt Park lot at Wawarme Avenue, and the lots in Elizabeth Park.
No time frame has been given for when vehicles will need to be removed from the public lots after the storm, other than “promptly.”
There will be yet another parking ban, reportedly beginning at 12:01 Sunday morning and ending at 6 on Sunday evening. This is according to the City of Hartford website. No email was sent by the mayor’s communication team.
The norm had been to give residents four hours to remove vehicles from public school and other approved lots, but the time frame was significantly shortened during the last storm. This time, no grace period has been announced.
The City of Hartford has this notice posted on its website:
UPDATE 9 Feb 2015:
If you were hoping for another case of deja vu, here it is. The City of Hartford is again playing around with the time that the parking ban is over. They say that the parking ban is lifted at 6 on Monday and that residents must removed vehicles by 8p.m. There is no reason given for why the normal four-hour grace period is not provided.
