At its Dec. 17 meeting, Williams Lake city council endorsed the proposal to align residential snow removal with the garbage and recycling pickup schedule, and restrict parking on streets for a 24-hour period the day preceding the scheduled garage pickup (for example if an area has garage pickup on a Tuesday, street parking is not permitted on Monday.)

Councillors said vehicles parked on the street interfere with the proper cleanup of snow.

Those found in violation will be towed.

Council also approved a number of parking regulation changes to parking in the area near Thompson Rivers university and 11th Avenue to address safety concerns, including prohibiting parking on the north side of 11th Avenue from McKinnon Street to Pigeon.
