Alternate Street Parking Returns To Buffalo Ahead Of Storm
The City of Buffalo is making changes to its parking policy ahead of another big snowstorm that is set to move through the area tonight.
The city sent out a text alert stating that alternate parking will be in effect for all 9-4 streets within the city. All cars on these streets must be parked legally or they could be towed.
The city will be using mini-tows to allow for snow clean-up and if your car is towed, you will be responsible for all expenses associated with the tow.
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for all of Western New York starting tonight from 10 pm until Friday afternoon at 1 pm. During the Winter Warning Western New York could see anywhere between 8 inches until 12 inches of snow during the warning period.
Also, Winter parking restrictions remain in effect for the City of Buffalo until April 1st, 2022. During this time you will also not be allowed to park on a bus route between 1:30 AM - 7:00 AM. The bus route restrictions are a City-wide Ordinance, and the City of Buffalo is not required to post signage advising of the restriction.
The City of Buffalo caught a lot of grief from residents after some streets within the city limits were plowed quickly during the last storm that came through Western New York.
