NO PARKING & SNOW REMOVAL FROM SIDEWALKS
As the winter months approach, we need the help of our residents to ensure the safety of all. Parking is prohibited on all streets in the City of New Buffalo from October 1st through April 1st, between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. to facilitate the removal of snow.
New Buffalo City Ordinance Section 18-4 states that no person who is the owner of any lot or premises within the City of New Buffalo shall permit any snow or ice to remain upon the sidewalks in front of or adjoin such lot or premises. Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after a snow fall.
Failure to remove snow could result in the issuance of a citation. Second home owners and absentee landlords are advised to make arrangements to have snow removed in their absence.
