With snowy, wet weather on its way, the municipality says it will be enforcing an overnight parking ban from 1 a.m. until 6 a.m. Monday. 

Any cars left blocking streets or sidewalks could be ticketed or towed.

Environment Canada is forecasting snow to begin this evening then change to ice pellets then to rain showers before morning. There is a risk of freezing rain overnight. Snow and ice pellet amount 2-4 cm. 

The municipality says it will increase enforcement of the parking ban in areas around hospitals, schools and bus routes.

They're also asking residents to make sure sidewalks are clear for snow removal.
