Gloversville police issue seasonal reminders
GLOVERSVILLE — The Gloversville Police Department issued several seasonal reminders to residents and visitors to the city this week regarding winter restrictions, prohibitions and activities requiring a permit included in the city code.
Restrictions banning overnight parking on all city streets over the winter months will go into effect on Nov. 30 extending until March 31. During this period parking on all city streets is prohibited from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.
During the winter parking ban several public parking lots will be designated for use by permitted vehicles only. Permits are $20 per month and can be obtained through the City Clerk’s office. Anyone wishing to obtain a permit must bring their driver’s license and vehicle registration. A limited number of vehicle permits are available.
Parking lots designated for use by permitted vehicles only during the winter are located at 12 Bleecker St., northeast of Church Street, 8 Church St., 9 Elm St., 22 Elm St., 24 Fremont St., 1 Frontage Road, the north side of Palmer Street and 13 Third Ave.
Tractor rigs, trailers and recreational vehicles are not permitted in any public parking lots. Vehicles parked in the designated lots without a permit may receive a citation and any prohibited vehicles may be towed at the owner’s expense.
Additionally, residents are reminded that operation of a mechanical snowplow in excess of 1,000 pounds used to blow or plow snow for a fee within the city is limited to permit holders only, obtainable through the City Clerk’s Office for a $25 fee. A valid driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance are required to obtain a permit.
A permit is not required by any individual operating a snowplow to remove snow from their own private property.
Throwing or otherwise depositing any accumulated snow or ice from private property on city sidewalks, terraces or streets is prohibited by law. Permitting or causing these actions is additionally prohibited.
Throwing or depositing accumulated snow or ice along city streets beyond the outer ridge created by the snow removal operations of the Department of Public Works is also prohibited by law, as is permitting or causing this to occur.
