SNOW REMOVAL NOTICE – SNOW REMOVAL NOTICE - SNOW REMOVAL NOTICE
Dear Landlords, Business Owners and Vehicle Owners,
The Gardiner Public Works will be clearing snow this winter in the downtown area of
Water Street and the Arcade Parking Lot. This has been a practice for at least the last
eighteen years. These projects are scheduled during the midnight hours so as not to
Interfere with the daytime business of the downtown area.
As a reminder, there is NO OVERNIGHT PARKING ON ANY CITY STREET. The Arcade Parking Lot will be cleaned in two pieces as to give a place to park during the cleanup period. Because it is such a big lot, cleaning starts with the Tiger Town end of the lot. Generally the Dennis' Pizza end of the lot is cleaned the next evening, although there are times due to the configuration of the parking lot that cleaning the Dennis' Pizza end doesn't have to be cleaned as frequently. In the Arcade Parking Lot prior to the start of midnight clean-up, eleven signs get placed at all entrances of the area to be cleaned during the daylight hours (3pm at the latest) indicating that one end of the lot will be cleaned and that cars will be towed if they are not moved. There is
always one end of the parking lot in which to park cars while the other end of the parking lot gets cleaned.
If vehicles remain interfering with the snow removal effort, Public Works contacts the
Gardiner PD for vehicle removal, which starts at midnight. The Gardiner Police
Department attempts to contact vehicle owners before the cars are
towed. All towed vehicles will be at the expense of the vehicle owner.
Snow removal events and parking bans will be posted on the city website and also posted on WMTW Channel 8, WCSH Channel 6, WGME Channel 13, WABK 104.5 and 92 moose. Vehicles found parked during parking bans will be ticketed
