24 Hour Parking

The Seward Police Department would like to remind the citizens of Seward of the 24 hour parking regulation. This becomes especially problematic when the city is attempting to clear snow from the streets. All vehicles may only be parked on city streets for 24 consecutive hours without being moved; any violation of this code is subject to a warning, citation or being towed at the owner’s expense. We thank you for your compliance.

§5-423 PARKING; MAXIMUM TIME LIMIT. The parking of a motor vehicle or of a
vehicle as defined by this Chapter of the City Code, on a public street, alley, or on anyoff-street parking areas located on city right of way for over (24) consecutive hours is
unlawful, except where a different maximum time limit is posted. (Ref. 39-671, 39-697
RS Neb.; 10-5-2 Code 1964) (Amended by Ord. Nos. 1152, 12/5/78; 31-84, 9/18/84)
