Mayor David: Obey City Parking Rules or Pay Fines

The City of Binghamton is appealing to people to obey alternate side of the street parking rules.
The City of Binghamton is appealing to people to obey alternate side of the street parking rules.

Mayor Rich David held a press conference this morning as the City's Department of Public Works crews were ready for the potential of another few inches of snow. After last Thursday's storm, more than 200 alternate side of the street parking tickets were issued. The initial cost is $30, and if not paid within two business days, the price goes up to $55.

"I encourage everybody to pay attention to the alternate street rules. The tickets are expensive, towing is very expensive. It all adds up with storage fees and all that," said assistant police chief Dave Eggleston.

Vehicles will be towed if they interfere with the ability of plows to get through. Residents can park off street in the lots at city parks. The city's DPW Commissioner says his crews are out in full force in this weather.

"We have been out ever since the first almost, plowing everyday pushing snow back, taking care of problem areas. We really have not stopped for almost seven weeks in one fashion or another," said Gary Holmes.

The city is also struggling to find places to pile snow, because the space between streets and sidewalks is already filled with it.
