This means that there is no on-street parking anywhere in the south and central peninsula area.

The decision comes after the Saint John Airport recorded 16 cm of snow on Saturday, according to totals from Environment Canada.

The city has stressed that any vehicles parked on the street after the ban comes into effect will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s risk and expense.
