The Kingston Township Police Chief Michael Moravec would like to remind residents that the Township Winter Parking Ordinance is effective November 1, 2018, and running through March 31, 2019. Under this ordinance residents are prohibited from parking vehicles on Township streets between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily. The Chief also reminds residents that vehicles are not permitted to be parked on Township streets during snowstorms, or for eight (8) hours after the end of a storm. The ordinance is designed to keep the Township streets open and clear so that snow removal measures can be effectively undertaken by the Public Works Department. The Chief urges all Township residents to cooperate in complying with the Township Ordinance to avoid enforcement measures. Residents with questions about the ordinance may contact Chief Moravec at 570-696-1175.
