A news release from the municipality says that the decision was made after “careful review and consideration regarding the increased demand for on-street parking surrounding healthcare facilities.”

But the HRM is reminding residents that the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act allows vehicles to be ticketed or towed at any time if they are deemed to be obstructing snow removal.

The municipality noted that “no proactive ticketing or towing will occur during this weather event.”
