The storm that started Friday night brought nearly two feet of snow (even taller drifts) and hundreds of parking tickets due to vehicle owners not following an issued parking ban, according to police.

During Fall River’s parking ban, which was issued by Mayor Paul Coogan and began at 6:00 p.m. on Friday and will conclude at 6:00 p.m. Monday, 510 parking tickets were issued which totaled $20,400 in fines.

According to FRPD, 30 vehicles were towed due to the parking ban.

The $40 fine per violation were issued for disrupting DCM during the storm with the parking ban in place.

There was also an issue of vehicles not abiding by the ban near the fire scene on Irving Street this weekend.

Parking had been made available by the City prior to the storm at the following locations:

o Flint Municipal Parking Lot on Cash Street
o Municipal Parking Lot on Columbia Street
o Talbot Middle School on Melrose Street

    Real nice. City makes over 20K and more than 48 hours after the storm the majority of the streets are sh!t. Glad to see my 6K property tax put to good use.
