Winter Parking By-Law Now in Effect

Gravenhurst, ON - With winter fast approaching, the Gravenhurst By-Law Department would like to remind the public about the WINTER PARKING BY-LAW.

Beginning (today) November 1st to April 30th, between the hours of 12:00 am to 7:00 am, the public is asked to ensure their vehicles are not parked along roadways to allow snow plows easier access to the road for the most effective snow removal.

•  Section 1 of the Winter Parking By-Law 2016-92 speaks to parking prohibition between November 1st and April 30th, 12:00 am and 7:00 am.

•  Section 19 of the Parking Control By-Law 2008-43 speaks to officers having the ability to tow away vehicles that are interfering with snow removal at any time.

The By-Law Department is asking everyone to make use of their parking lots and/or driveways to avoid unnecessary costs/expenses associated with infractions and promote road safety in the Town of Gravenhurst.
