No overnight parking allowed on city streets starting Dec. 1 through April 1
Despite a lack of snow in the past few weeks, the city of Mount Pleasant will not allow students or residents to park overnight on city streets until spring.
The ordinance was initially created to help the city with snow removal.
Between 2 and 5 a.m., Dec. 1 through April 1, no “person shall park a vehicle on any street in the city,” according to the city of Mount Pleasant’s website. This includes downtown streets, which do not allow overnight parking at any time during the year.
There are some exceptions to the rules, however. People who possess overnight parking permits can park in city Lots 1-6. On even days of the month, residents with overnight parking permits must park in even numbered lots.
On odd days of the month, they must park in odd numbered lots.
For Lots 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6, enforcement hours are 4 a.m. to 6 a.m. Enforcement hours are 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. daily in Lot 3.
Those in violation of overnight parking will receive a $15 fine. If the fine is not payed within a week, the fee increases to $30.
