New Parking Ordinances In Valentine


Valentine Police Chief Dana Miller was our guest on the Wednesday morning Comment program on KVSH Radio. Chief Miller wanted to clarify what some new parking ordinances required of people in the area that are in effect as of Wednesday November 19th.

At the November city council meeting, several new ordinances were passed on a 3-2 vote. The first regards how long any vehicle may be parked on a public street within Valentine city limits. Any vehicle or trailer lawfully parked curbside MUST be moved at least once every 7 days or else the owner of that vehicle would be subject to a fine.

The parking of trailers with boats, personal watercraft, canoes, etc. on city streets was also discussed. This will no longer be allowed for any length of time between the months of November through March under any circumstances except to load or unload the vessel.

Chief Miller also wanted to remind residents that any time 4 inches or more of snow is expected to fall in Valentine it is asked that all vehicles and trailers are removed from the streets. Within a 24 hour period on North-Southbound roads, and then for East-Westbound streets to allow for snow removal.

If you have any questions about the new or any other city ordinances and their enforcement, you are asked to call the Valentine Police Department at 402-376-3055.
