The cities of Kitchener and Waterloo have announced that their snow events have been extended an extra 24 hours and will now last right through Tuesday.
On Sunday, Kitchener, declared a snow event, as did Waterloo and Cambridge, which means that there is a ban on parking on city streets.
Anybody who ignores the ban risks being fined, or having their vehicles tagged and towed (at the owner’s expense) if a snowplow is unable to clean city streets.
Cambridge’s ban was put into effect until 3 p.m. whereas the others put theirs in effect from midnight Sunday until midnight Monday, with the flexibility to extend or cancel as needed.
Overnight parking exemptions are not permitted during a snow event.
The area is currently under a winter storm warning from Environment Canada with the potential for snowfall of 25 cm to 40 cm.
