TROY, NY – City officials have announced increased parking enforcement efforts to assist Department of Public Works and Public Utilities staff effectively and efficiently clear snow from roadways. Residents are asked to observe all posted parking restrictions in their neighborhoods to help keep city streets open for municipal snow plowing operations.

If available, residents are asked to park their vehicle in driveways to keep city roadways clear ahead of scheduled plowing operations.
