Milwaukee, Wisconsin 2020-10-18 22:13:02 –
Milwaukee’s night parking restrictions will resume on November 2.
It revived after a 14: 1 vote by the Common Council on October 13.
As part of the city’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, time restrictions, pay-as-you-go, and day and night parking restrictions were all suspended on March 19.
Milwaukee’s Public Utilities Board says resuming nighttime parking restrictions will help with efforts to collect leaves, clean streets, and ultimately remove snow and ice.
This restriction means that you must have a permit to park on the permitted streets from 2 am to 6 am Monday through Saturday. The permit costs $ 55 for 12 months and $ 20 for 4 months.
We will warn offending vehicles until November 1st in preparation for lifting the night parking restrictions.
The only councilor who did not vote for the resumption of night parking restrictions was city councilman Halif Rainey. In a statement, Rainey said he didn’t want to put an additional financial burden on the thousands of city dwellers who would have to pay a permit during a pandemic.
“Vote (Tuesday) wasn’t difficult for me,” Rainey wrote. “And I will continue to stand for my members and what I believe to be right.”
