With winter in the air, now is the time to refresh ourselves on winter parking restrictions that are initiated with the city’s declaration of a Snow Event.
When inclement weather is forecasted, the City of Elk River may declare a Snow Event, which means overnight winter parking restrictions will be in effect, prohibiting parking on city streets between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Snow Event overnight parking spaces are designated with signage along the north side of the King Avenue parking lot. If plow operators encounter vehicles left on city streets during a Snow Event, Elk River Police will be dispatched to ticket and tow, per city ordinance. Nightly parking restrictions will remain in effect from 2:00 and 6:00 a.m. until the Snow Event is lifted by city staff members.
