Winter Parking

City of Sheboygan Department of Public Works

Alternate Side Parking Enforcement Suspended Effective March 28, 2020

By order of the Chief of Police and the Mayor of Sheboygan, the City of Sheboygan will suspend the enforcement of alternate side winter parking rules effective Saturday, March 28, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 circumstances. The alternate side parking rules assist the Department of Public Works in cleaning winter and fall debris from the streets and gutters. The city is asking for residents’ cooperation by continuing to follow the alternate side parking rules through Friday, March 27, 2020, to give the Department of Public Works a few more days to run street sweeping operations. If a winter storm does develop between now and April 30, the winter parking rules may be reinstated to assist with plowing operations. The status of winter parking is posted in real-time on sheboygandpw.com and any updates will also be posted on nextdoor.com, facebook.com/cityofsheboygan, facebook.com/sheboygandpw, twitter.com/sheboyganwisc, and twitter.com/sheboygandpw.
