2/23/12 – The Beaver Dam Police Department is reminding local residents that winter parking rules are still in effect. The parking prohibition begins with the first significant snowfall and while it could go into effect as early as December 1, it didn’t kick in until mid-January this year. Even with the mild winter, Deputy Police Chief Dan Schubert says there is still no parking allowed on city streets between 2am and 6am so that the Department of Public Works can clear the snow. Citations will be issued for violations and begin at $20 if the ticket is paid within 24 hours. The parking ban will remain in effect until April 1, unless it is announced that the ban has been temporarily or permanently lifted.
