Parking Advisory

Presidents Day is one of the eight holidays on which alternate side of the street overnight parking is suspended. Tonight, when you park your car for the night, you can park it on either side of the street without risking being ticketed. 

For everyone's reference, here are the other seven holidays on which the alternate side rules are suspended:
  1. New Year's Day
  2. Martin Luther King Day
  3. Memorial Day
  4. Independence Day
  5. Labor Day
  6. Thanksgiving Day
  7. Christmas Day

  1. But, inexplicably (though perhaps unsurprisingly), two parking enforcers will be on duty tomorrow on a federal holiday issuing parking meter tickets, many to drivers who assumed the meters (and the meter maids) are on a holiday, too.
    There are eleven federal holidays a year, maybe twelve, when city hall is closed. The meters and the maids take a break on just 6 of those federal holidays, and the only way to know those dates seems to be to visit the city code and try your best to locate the correct chapter. If the information regarding the dates are available to the public on the Parking Bureau's webpage, it ain't easy to find! Why would it be?
    When City Hall is closed, no enforcers should be working, either. For what it's worth, neither Catskill nor Albany issues parking meter tickets on any federal holidays. Hmmm, I wonder why they would do such a logical, common sense, expected and respectful thing for the public and we wouldn't. Better ask the mayor if you want clarification!
