Continuous parking enforcement in municipal parking lots and in a limited downtown core area is undertaken by By-Law Enforcement staff. Parking regulations are covered under By-Law 45-89 and state that a vehicle is allowed two free hours to park in an authorized parking spot. If two hour parking in a municipal parking lot is insufficient, a permit for a longer period may be purchased from the Environmental Services Department.
By-Law Enforcement staff undertake parking enforcement, by complaint only, in areas outside of the municipal parking lots and downtown core area. These areas are generally limited to five hours of continuous parking by a non-commercial motor vehicle. There is a limit of two hours for a commercial motor vehicle of less than a rated gross vehicle weight of 10,000 lbs.
Notwithstanding the purchase and proper display of an Overnight Parking Permit, no parking on any city street is permitted between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. from November 15th to March 15th of the following year. Overnight Parking Permits are available from the Environmental Services Department upon payment of an annual fee of $56.50.
