MONROE POLICE DEPARTMENT
CALENDAR PARKING AND SNOW REMOVAL
The Monroe Police Department, in conjunction with the Monroe Street Department, reminds all persons that Calendar Parking regulations for the City of Monroe began at 12:01 AM on November 15, 2021, and will continue through March 31, 2022.
Persons must park on the even side of streets and avenues on even numbered dates and the odd side on odd numbered dates. The ordinance is enforced from 12:00 AM to 7:00 AM each day. Persons should park their vehicles at night on the side of the street or avenue that will be in effect after 12:00 AM. A quick method to determine if you live on the odd or even side is to look at your house address number, and then park accordingly. Citations for violation of the ordinance begin at $20.00 and increase for multiple offenses. Nearly all areas in the City are covered by these regulations, with the exception of the Downtown Square and two blocks in any direction of the Square.
The City also has areas, in the downtown and in the Smoky Row area, which are snow routes. If there is a snowfall of more than two (2) inches, all vehicles must be removed from the street for snow removal. These areas are marked with signs indicating the snow route area.
Finally, everyone is reminded that snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks as soon as possible following a snowfall, for safety purposes, and it is a violation of City ordinances to shovel, blow, throw or plow snow from private property into the street or onto the property of another.
The Police and Street Departments ask for the cooperation and patience of everyone during this upcoming season, and point out that if everyone pays attention to parking and snow removal ordinances, it is much easier to remove snow.
