Street parking and snow

Have you been wondering about parking in downtown Woodstock during periods of heavy snow? If you park on the street or in a City parking lot and snow is falling, read the signs on the street and in the parking lot carefully.

What are the rules about snow, streets and Woodstock? Visit and click on the link in the section on the right with the headline, "Questions about Snow Removal?" Read especially about adopting a fire hydrant during the winter...
From the City's Public Work's webpage comes the following:

"Calling Service for Downtown Snow Removal Parking Ban

"As a service to our residents and late-night businesses downtown, the City does strive to provide as much information and advance notice as possible regarding the need to impose a snow parking ban. The Department of Public Works maintains an after-hours recorded message (815.338.6118) for up-to-date information about snowfalls and parking bans.

"Downtown residents may also be included on a calling list to receive direct notification once a parking ban has been imposed (if they have requested this service in advance). Call the Department of Public Works during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday) to be placed on this direct call list."
