City of Belding - Right of Way Parking

City of Belding - Right of Way Parking

From: http://www.ci.belding.mi.us/

The Belding Police Department is enforcing rules regarding parking in the right–of-way on City streets.

The right-of-way is property located within and adjoining the public streets, roads, highways and public easements within the city, which rights of way are owned by the city. This area must also be maintained by the property owner.

If you are parking on the right-of-way, now is a good time to start parking on the road. If you are found parking on the right-of-way, a warning notice will be left with your vehicle. If the vehicle remains or continues parking on the right-of-way, a parking citation will be issued.

Also, as a reminder, November 1 thru March 31, there is No Parking on any City street 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m..

Your compliance is appreciated.
Thank you.

Dale E. Nelson
Chief of Police
