It sounds like our warm and dry winter weather pattern is on the verge of making a change, so here's what you'll need to know for navigating the winter streets and parking in Faribault.

OK, So What Are the Winter Parking Rules?

Whenever the City of Faribault declares a 'Snow Emergency,' it becomes illegal to park on any city street from 1:00 m through 8:00 am to allow the city to clear the streets. Vehicles in violation of Snow Emergency regulations can be ticketed and towed.

How Do I Know If a Snow Emergency has Been Declared?

Snow emergencies are announced on the city web page. A message is also left on the Public Works phone line at 507-333-0368. The city has also installed 2 blue lights downtown (on Central Avenue and Division Street, and on Central Avenue and 4th Street NW). These blue lights flash when a snow emergency has been announced for that evening. Snow emergencies will also be announced on this radio station.

What Do I Need to Do If My Vehicle is Towed?

Your vehicle may be obtained by contacting Glenn's Towing Service at 628 Central Avenue (507-334-4202). You will be responsible for the towing and impound fees.

By the Way, How Much Time Do I Have to Clear My Sidewalk?

Your sidewalk must be cleared of snow and ice each day. Failure to do so within a 24-hour period can result in a citation.

Also, if your mailbox, lawn, or other property is damaged by a snowplow, you can contact the City of Faribault Public Works Department at 507-333-0361. Their staff will be sent out to determine the cause and responsibility for repair or replacement.
