I keep getting tickets for odd/even parking. What are the rules?
Effective November 1 through April 1 of each year no person shall park a vehicle between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. on the odd-numbered side of all city streets on the odd-numbered days of the calendar month, and on the even-numbered side of all city streets on the even-numbered days of the calendar month.

To explain this policy in simple terms: when you park your car for the evening (before midnight) on an even numbered day (November 10th) park on the side of the street where the house numbers are even (102,104, etc.), to avoid being on the odd side of the street at 2 a.m. on an odd day and visa versa.

Please Note: This tip does not work if you park after midnight because the date has changed, so follow the city code language. In addition, beware of the instances when the 31st of the month changes to the 1st of the month as both are odd-numbered days. Your compliance with this policy helps keep the city's streets free from accumulated snow, and free from debris. If your street only has parking on one side of the street, you may have to find parking on a nearby street on alternate days.

The City Clerk's Office has a listing of the streets that are exempt from the odd/even parking regulation. Streets marked permanently for 24-hour parking make up the bulk of these streets.
