CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- Winter parking rules go into effect Wednesday for several area cities.

Stanley and La Crosse all have their restricted parking laws starting Nov.15.

In Stanley, no parking is allowed on city streets during this time from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.

La Crosse’s alternate-side parking starts at 1 a.m. on Wednesday. Vehicles should be parked only on even-numbered sides of the street on those nights when an even calendar date (after midnight), and on odd-numbered sides of the street on those nights with an odd calendar date (after midnight).

In Chippewa Falls, winter parking will start Nov. 20. City ordinance prohibits the parking of vehicles on streets for more than 30 minutes between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Chippewa Falls Police say the police and street department will be closely monitoring the weather before we decide to start actually issuing citations.

In Eau Claire will be using their ‘snow emergency’ policy. If a snow emergency is issued, the city will notify the public at 6 p.m. the night before. When a snow emergency is issued, that means alternate side street parking will take effect at midnight.
