TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — A sign of spring has come to the Town of Tonawanda and Village of Kenmore as officials announced the overnight winter parking restrictions are being lifted as of today, March 5.
Officials say the decision to lift the restrictions is due to the favorable forecast for the month of March.
"As is the case when this was done in previous years, in the event of a significant snowfall in the Town please use common sense and remove your vehicles from the street so our Town Highway plows can get down your street easily to clear them. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated," a release from the Town of Tonawanda says.
"EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: Due to favorable weather forecasts the Village of Kenmore is lifting our overnight parking restrictions effective immediately. If we do get some measurable snow please use common sense and remove your vehicles from the street. Thank you. Please share," a Facebook post from the Village of Kenmore Police Department says.

Chief William Strassburg
Welcome to the City of Tonawanda Police Department. We are located at the western terminus point of the Erie Canal and on the shores of the Niagara River between Buffalo and Niagara Falls in Western New York State. We are approximately 10 miles from Canada and about 90 miles from Toronto, Ontario. We serve a population of 18, citizens with 28 sworn and 10 civilian employees. Tonawanda is an Iroquois Indian name when translated means swift water. Situated only nine miles from the brink of Niagara Falls, the water of the Niagara River truly flows "swiftly".
The City of Tonawanda is a full service organization with a proud history of over years in existence. Our agency followed the Community Policing philosophy long before the term was coined. Our Officers participate in many community events including the annual Canal Festival, and many others. Much of our duties include the patrol of the many parks located adjacent to our waterways and our Marine Patrol. Officers patrol the parks not only in cars, but bicycles and a golf cart for added flexibility. We are very proud of our heritage and look to providing the best Law Enforcement services possible as we enter the millennium.

Overnight Parking on City Streets and Public Areas
The City of Tonawanda has a very specific ordinance regarding the overnight parking of vehicles. Signs are posted when you first enter the City from any roadway. The ordinance says:
Section All Night Parking
(a) The standing of vehicles between the hours of a.m. and a.m. on all City streets is hereby prohibited from October 1 through March
(b) The following vehicles are prohibited: any trailers, semi-trailers, recreational vehicles, campers, boats, commercial business vehicles, or livery vehicles.
The Police Department attempts to accommodate people when it is possible. During the winter months normally exceptions are not granted to the parking ordinance, but during the warmer months when no snow plowing is a possibility, we will grant permission for a vehicle to be parked on the City streets if a request is made and a valid reason is offered. Permission will NOT be granted for extended periods of time, but valid reasons for overnight permission may include:
- Overnight guests and no parking available in your driveway to accommodate the extra cars.
- Construction prohibits you using the driveway.
- The vehicle is disabled and cannot be removed until the next day.
If this situation exists, you may call our Dispatch Center and request permission for the vehicle to be parked on the City Street. We can continue to accommodate these requests as long as the situation is not abused.
Parking Problems (General)
Disabled Vehicles. If a vehicle becomes disabled, the Police must consider the complications of leaving the vehicle for any period of time. If the vehicle is obstructing vehicular or pedestrian traffic, the vehicle will be towed at your expense. We normally will attempt to contact the owner first, but this problem cannot be left unattended. If your car does break down in traffic or on a city street, please call our dispatch center at and we will do whatever we can to accommodate your removal of the vehicle.
Parking Across the Sidewalk. This is a year round problem. Pedestrians need and deserve the right to use the public sidewalk without obstruction. Even leaving your car there for a "couple minutes" while you run into the house does not help the person who is walking, particularly those handicap residents and child strollers. Please be courteous and leave the sidewalk clear. During the winter, it would also help to clean snow off the sidewalk as you do your driveway.
Complaints about snow plowing of driveways and discharging snow into the street are common during the wintertime. Snow Plow operators need to have a City permit and insure that they entirely remove snow from the street. When you are shoveling or snow-blowing, please don't deposit the snow in the street. This can cause a hazardous situation for traffic, and even more basic is the fact the City spends many thousands of dollars plowing the streets to make them as usable as possible during inclement weather. Please think of your neighbors when doing this activity.

If your vehicle’s license plates have been confiscated by this department for a registration suspension or revocation (or improperly used plates) they are turned in to the DMV, you must go to a local DMV (there is one in this building) to start the process of clearing your suspended registration. The DMV will explain to you this process. Please note that the charges placed against the driver are still pending and must be answered in court.
