No one knows when snow will start to fall in Woburn, because after all, it is New England.
But that is known is where residents can and can't park in the city starting in the middle of this month.
The Woburn Police Department is reminding residents that the winter parking ban goes into effect at 2 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.
Through the city ordinance, street parking is allowed on the odd side of the street only between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Any vehicles that are parked on the even side of the street during those hours may be given a $20 fine. Parking restrictions last from November 15 to March 31.
In addition, city officials can declare a complete ban on street parking during a snow emergency. In that case, any vehicles parked on the street during a snow emergency may be towed at the owner's expense.
"Patrol officers have been ordered to ticket all cars in violation of the ordinance and to report all repeat offenders to the traffic bureau," police said in a parking ban announcement.
