After a little light lake effect snow overnight, the City of Evanston is scheduled to wrap up cleanup operations from this weekend’s major storm by banning parking on the odd-numbered side of most residential streets today.

So far, Evanston Police report, the snow cleanup operation has led to over three hundred drivers having their cars ticketed and towed.

Sgt. Tracy Williams says that the overnight parking ban on snow routes Saturday night led to 10 trucks from North Shore towing hauling 104 cars to North Shore’s pound and 118 cars were ticketed.

On Sunday, as the even-numbered side of residential streets were cleared, 20 trucks from various tow companies hired by the city towed and relocated 228 cars and police issued 231 tickets.

Today is also the Martin Luther King Day holiday, so many city facilities are closed, and trash pickups will be one day later than normal this week.
