MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is calling on the Common Council to reinstate night parking restrictions.
Parking rules were suspended in March when the coronavirus was first declared a pandemic.
Some parking restrictions resumed in September, but night parking rules did not.
According to the City, night parking regulations are in effect throughout Milwaukee. A permit is required to park on the street from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. and alternate side parking is a requirement in many areas to allow equipment proper access for street sweeping, leaf collection and snow removal.
"All you have to do is look outside and you're going to see leaves falling, and it's going to make it very difficult for our workers," said Mayor Barrett. "And if you remember last Halloween, we had snow."
The Common Council is taking up a resolution Tuesday, Oct. 13.
The meeting starts at 9 a.m.
