Village Notice: Street Parking UPDATE


Vehicles parked within 6 foot of the edge of the blacktop will be ticketed and/or towed away at owner’s expense.  The Village of Saranac will not be responsible for any damage to vehicles left parked in the right-of-way during snow plowing operations.  The growing number of vehicles parked on the street and road right-of-ways has in the past greatly hampered snow plowing efforts.  Village ordinances require all properties to furnish off street parking for all vehicles.

Thank you for your cooperation,
Village of Saranac

Department of Public Works
