OSWEGO, NY – With the onset on nice weather, Mayor Randolph Bateman has lifted the city-wide parking ban effective March 9.
Oswego City Police Chief Michael J. Dehm Jr. wishes to remind citizens that the 3 to 6 a.m. parking ban in downtown parking lots remains in effect throughout the year.
And, that the Oswego Police Department will begin more diligent enforcement of the city ordinances regarding blocked sidewalks and green space violations.
Violators of the above restrictions are subject to ticketing where fines of $30 may be assessed, and the fine will double if not paid after 30 days.
According to the chief, Ã¢â‚¬Å“We would like to take this opportunity to remind our Oswego community that with the seasonal increase in pedestrians and children at play, it is even more important to keep the sidewalks clear. Now that the winter parking ban has been lifted, the Greenspace Parking permits are no longer valid, and residents should begin lawn repair caused by winter parking as soon as the weather allows.Ã¢â‚¬Â
