With winter upon us, the Public Works Department would like to remind residents of the winter parking prohibitions. Please do not park along any village street during snow falls of two inches or more. Violators may be ticketed or towed. With your cooperation, this will help in getting the roads cleared as quickly as possible.
The Maple Park Village Code reads as follows:
7-4-1-1: PARKING PROHIBITED AFTER SNOWFALL
A. It shall be unlawful to park any vehicle on any public street in the village at any time after a snowfall of two inches (2″) or more has occurred.
B. Any person, firm, partnership, corporation or association found violating the provisions of this section shall be subject to a fine for each violation of this section and may be subject to towing of said vehicle. The cost of said towing shall be the obligation and the expense of the vehicle owner. (Ord. 2013-05, 4-2-2013)
Do you have a street light out in your neighborhood? Please call the village office at (815) 827-3309 with the address closest to the light that is out and we will be happy to take care of it.
You can also send an email to email@example.com and make sure you include the address closest to the street light so we can get it taken care of.
We don’t know it’s out unless you tell us that it’s out.
Would you like your utility bill to be on time, every time? The Village of Maple Park has a direct debit program that is easy to sign up for. Just complete the
