116 cars towed overnight


One-hundred-sixteen people had their cars towed overnight in Evanston for violating the snow route parking ban, and city crews are out today towing more cars to enforce the snow emergency parking rules on residential streets across the city.

James Maiworm of the city's Pubic Works Agency says the city received seven inches of snow from the weekend storm.

Maiworm says main roads and secondary roads have now been cleared. Crews today will focus on clearing residential streets.

Overnight tonight, crews will begin to clean up business districts — pulling windrows of snow off of the sidewalks and clearing around parking meters to provide access to parking and stores.

That's expected to take more than one day to complete, Maiworm says, while additional crews will be cleaning sidewalks and parking lots.

Parking is banned between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the even-numbered side or residential streets today (an even-numbered day) and during the same hours on the odd-numbered side of residential streets on Tuesday.
