A snowstorm no-parking ban aimed at keeping streets clear for the passage of emergency vehicles was proposed last night by the Lewiston Public Safety Board with the full backing of the Public Works Department.

The city council will be asked to pass an ordinance outlining the emergency conditions.

In general, the ordinance would prohibit the parking of vehicles on the odd number side of the streets when the municipality is hit with a snowstorm. Only when one side of the street had been cleared of snow by the PWD would the ban be lifted.
