BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The City of Buffalo is asking for cooperation from residents as crews continue to remove snow from side streets following Tuesday's winter storm.

The city has not been enforcing the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekday parking rules because so many people have been working from home during the pandemic. But that has also made it more difficult for plows to clear the sides of streets, making parking challenging at times.

Commissioner of Public Works, Parks and Streets Michael Finn says the city is encouraging people to follow the 9 to 4 parking signs, but says the parking rules remain suspended in these sections of the city and stressed no one will be ticketed for not moving their car if it is parked legally.

"Anyone who can voluntarily move to clear spaces out, awesome," Finn said.

If your street has 6 p.m. to 6 p.m. alternate parking regulations, you are asked to move your vehicle on Thursdays when alternate side parking normally takes effect. You will need to move it back on Mondays at 6 p.m.

Winter parking rules do remain in effect for all bus routes in the city.
