Reminder: Bethel Has Overnight Parking Ban to Allow for Snowplowing

The Town of Bethel has a parking ban in place each year to allow for snowplowing, so please remember to move your car before 2:00 a.m. Thursday due to the predicted snowstorm.

A yearly winter parking ban will become effective November 15 of each year and shall continue to April 15 of the following year.  This parking ban prohibits on-street parking between the hours of 2:00 a.m. through 6:00 a.m. so that snowplowing, when required, will not be impeded.

Parking warnings will be issued during the first week, and, effective November 22, parking tickets may be issued.

Any person who shall receive a parking ticket from the Police Department to the effect that said vehicle was parked during this prohibited time frame shall pay to the Clerk of the Police Department the sum of $10 within 30 days from such violation.
