Illegally parked cars are subject to ticket and/or tow. It also requires officers to respond to these complaints, taking them away from other duties and emergencies in the Township. 

All in all, the overnight snowfall was expected to be 1 to 3 inches, with a possible new snow accumulation of 7 to 11 inches on Thursday.
