During a snow emergency there is no parking permitted on these streets. Violators will be towed. This is necessary to move ambulances and police and fire vehicles throughout Hoboken in times of emergency for the safety and welfare of all our citizens.
The Hoboken Parking Utility is extending the courtesy to Hoboken residents with Residential parking permits to keep their vehicles in Garages B and D at the reduced Resident rate of $5.00 from 4pm on Sunday to 8am on Monday.
In addition, please be advised that all sidewalks must be cleared of snow within six hours after the completion of the storm. Please be advised that dumping or shoveling snow into restricted fire hydrants areas or into City streets is a violation of the law and subject to a fine. Keeping these areas clear is vital for the safety of the general public.
