Brookville Borough Police to Step Up Parking Enforcement During Winter Months

BROOKVILE, Pa (EYT) – If you live in Brookville Borough, you may want to keep a close eye on where you park this winter.

At Tuesday’s Borough Council meeting, Borough Police Chief discussed a new effort to increase the enforcement of an ordinance that prohibits vehicles from being parked on some streets during times when snow removal may occur.

During the months of December, January, February, March and when there is snow on the roadway, parking is prohibited from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays on the following streets:

– Barnett Street (from Jefferson Street south)
– Franklin Avenue
– Jefferson Street
– North Pickering Street
– South Pickering Street (to Mabon Street)

During the months of December, January, February, March and when there is snow on the roadway, parking is prohibited from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays on the following streets:

– Barnett Street (from Butler north)
– Oak Street
– Pine Street
– South Pickering Street (from Creek Street)
– South Pickering Street
– Walnut Street
– Western Avenue

Chief Markle noted that signs throughout the borough warn motorists that parking is prohibited during these times.

“I’ve had a few people come into the station and ask if we could start enforcing that because they have such a problem trying to get their driveways cleared,” said Chief Markle.

“We’re going to start enforcing those signs, so it alleviates some confusion and will make it easier for (borough workers) to get the streets cleared off.”

According to Brookville Borough code, anyone who violates the ordinance faces a $10 plus prosecution costs.
