There is no parking on any City Street from 2:00 a.m. - 5:00 a.m. from October 1-March 31, per Williamston City Ordinance Sec 66-145.  If there is a late snowfall (in April) cars will need to be off the streets.  This is to allow our DPW workers the ability to remove snow from streets.

It is the responsibility of the property owner to remove any ice and snow from the entire length of the sidewalk on their property whether the property is unoccupied or if there is a building or structure on it.  Sidewalks need to be cleared within 24 hours of cessation of snowfall if less than 4" or within 48 hours if greater than 4". Sidewalks not cleared may be cleaned by the City and the property owner will be invoiced. Per City Ordinance 50-32.
