Duluth police will be increasing parking enforcement following last week's snowstorm.

Police said the snow is making vehicle and pedestrian travel difficult. They said it's made worse by people violating the 24-hour parking and calendar parking ordinances.

Under the 24-hour parking ordinance, no vehicle is allowed to be parked on any street or highway within Duluth for more than 24 consecutive hours.

Under the alternate side parking ordinance, all vehicles on public roads must follow calendar parking. Vehicles must switch sides of the street every Sunday between 4 and 8 p.m.

Police said following these ordinances helps with snow removal.

Officers will be out in full force enforcing these two ordinances. Tickets can cost $21 and tows start at about $100.
