BG Police Remind Residents of 24 Hour Parking Rules


Residents are reminded that leaving a vehicle parked on a city street over 24 hours can make it subject to ticketing and tow.


   (A)   No person shall park a vehicle on any of the public streets or alleys in the city for a continuous time longer than 24 hours.
   (B)   Whoever violates this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor.
With the heavy snow fall throughout the city BG Police Parking units have noted nearly 100 vehicles parked on non- snow streets that have been stationary for over 24 hours. It was clear that many of these vehicles have not been moved since the last snow event over the past weekend. In order to facilitate the clearing of these streets those vehciles have been marked for 24 hour parking. Beginning tomorrow at 10:00 AM those vehicles marked will be ticketed and towed.
