The city of Concord has called a city-wide parking ban for Wednesday morning.

The ban means no parking is allowed on any of the city’s streets between midnight and 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Parking is available free of charge in the city’s three municipal garages from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. every day in permitted spaces and 7 p.m. to 9 a.m. in metered spaces, regardless of weather.

Tuesday’s forecast is promising up to 8 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service. The day will start out with light snow, and then ramp up with snow and sleet, possibly freezing rain, as day turns into night. Temperatures are expected to hover in the low 20s.

Violators of the ban can find themselves facing a ticket and a towing fee. A ticket will run you $100. Any ticket that goes unpaid for 10 business days doubles in cost and quadruples after 20.

A towing fee costs $125 this year. Retrieving your vehicle from where it was towed before 8 a.m. or after 5 p.m. costs $60. You’ll be hit with a $55 storage fee for every 24 hours you don’t retrieve your car.

Those fees are negotiated between the city and the towing company each year, and the towing companies pocket the various fees.

Should the city tow your car, there are four places it could end up: BRC Towing, Above All Collision Center, Patsy’s Auto Body & Alignment and John’s Wrecker Service.
