Winter parking bans return

Overnight winter parking bans are set to come into effect in some municipalities within the Quad Counties.
Bans start in both Antigonish Town and County as of Dec. 1.
That includes all town-owned parking lots, as well as streets and marked parking lots at StFX.
The Town of Mulgrave's winter parking ban also comes into effect at 12:01 a.m.
The Town of Port Hawkesbury's ban started Nov. 15.
Most bans start at 12:01 a.m.
Port Hawkesbury is the exception; it starts at 1 a.m.
All overnight winter parking bans last until 7 a.m, until the middle of April.
Municipal officials say your vehicle could be towed at your expense if it interferes with snow removal and other winter maintenance.
