Winter Overnight Parking Restrictions In Effect

The City of Portage overnight parking ordinance takes effect on November 1 each year. The ordinance prohibits overnight parking on any public street between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. local time from November 1 through April 15. The ordinance is meant to aid in the swift and complete removal of snow from city streets during the overnight hours. This restriction is in effect whether or not snow is present. Additionally, the City of Portage recommends that during times outside the restricted parking hours when snow is present, residents make an effort to not park on the street.
