Winter parking enforcement

Big Lake Police Dept.
Chief Joel D. Scharf


Winter will soon be upon us….members of the Big Lake Police Department will begin taking enforcement action on the City of Big Lake Winter Parking Restrictions November 1.  Having vehicles removed from the roadways in accordance with the ordinance allows Public Works to effectively maintain our roadways as winter conditions change and begin to develop.
Big Lake City Ordinance requires that no vehicle be parked on a public roadway from November 1 to April 15, between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 08:00 a.m.  Vehicles must also be removed from roadways when a snowfall of 2” of more occurs, until the roadways have been cleared.
For more information on parking regulations in the City of Big Lake, please visit:, or if any questions arise regarding s citation that is issued, please call the Big Lake Police Department at 763-263-2500.
