RICHLAND CENTER POLICE DEPARTMENT

The City of Richland Center wants to remind residents that Alternate Side Parking began on Sunday December 1st, this is a change from previous years, and will run through February 28, 2020. Persons parking vehicles on city streets are required to abide by Alternate Side Parking regulations EACH NIGHT between December 1st and February 28, 2020.
Alternate Side Parking enforcement will take place randomly throughout the week in addition to when the city receives an accumulation of snow and/or ice. Alternate Side Parking will be enforced between the hours of 12:01 AM and 7:00 AM.
Alternate Side Parking requires vehicles to be parked on the odd numbered side of the street on odd numbered dates and the even numbered side of the street on even numbered dates. Residents need to remember that the date during the overnight hours of 12:01 am to 7:00 am determines odd or even side parking. Owners of vehicles in violation of Alternate Side Parking regulations will be subject to a $10.00 parking ticket.
During a period of unusually severe winter weather, the city may declare a Snow Removal Emergency. During a Snow Removal Emergency, parking is prohibited on all city streets and highways. Residents would be required to find off-street parking for up to 72 hours or until snow-removal operations are declared completed by the Public Works Superintendent. Violations of a Snow Removal Emergency will result in a $15.00 ticket.
