The city says it will continue to enforce the winter parking ban from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. Wednesday, but it will allow “limited” on-street parking beginning at 6 a.m.
“Officers will use their discretion in targeting parked vehicles that create a safety hazard, impede snow operations or make the road impassable for other cars, including emergency vehicles,” city spokesperson Jennifer Stairs said in a statement.
Halifax’s top bureaucrat addressed city council Tuesday afternoon to address the city’s snow-clearing efforts so far.
Chief Administrative Officer Richard Butts said things will be getting back to normal soon, but in the meantime, drivers should use discretion.
“There’s three questions you need to ask yourself if you’re thinking about parking: First off, is it safe to park? Secondly, is it passable for other traffic, particularly emergency vehicles? And finally, is there snow-clearing underway?” said Butts.
Halifax Transit service will continue to be free throughout Wednesday. Anyone who purchased a monthly pass for March will be able to use it until April 6.
