Snow Ordinance-Dec 1-April 1
*** PARKING NOTICE ***
The Clarion Borough Snow Removal Ordinance starts December 1, 2017 and will be enforced to April 1, 2018.
The Ordinance prohibits parking on both sides of North and South running streets from 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The Ordinance prohibits parking on both sides of East and West running streets, between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.
The Ordinance prohibits parking on both sides of Main Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue.
The Ordinance prohibits parking in the Liberty Street, Wood Street and Ross Memorial Municipal Parking Lots between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Mondays and Fridays.
If your vehicle is parked in violation of the Ordinance, you will be fined $50.00. All Borough streets are affected and disabled vehicles are NOT excluded.
The Clarion Borough Police Department wishes to point out that many people are fined each year because of misconceptions. The following problems most commonly result in tickets being issued:
- This is not a weather-related ordinance. There is no requirement for snowfall. The Ordinance is a seasonal parking Ordinance.
- Many people forget that “tomorrow” begins at 12:00 midnight. It is a common mistake to go to bed on Monday night, forgetting that it becomes Tuesday at one minute after midnight. If your car is parked on an East and West running street, you will find a $50.00 ticket on your windshield.
- Vehicles must be moved COMPLETELY off of the highway, this includes the Borough’s right-of-way.
We would like you to start your day right. Do not make the mistakes we have pointed out to you. Please note the signs in place throughout the Borough and avoid an unnecessary fine. Have a nice winter season and drive safely.
