New London Winter Parking Ordinance

NO PARKING on any city street from 3 - 6 a.m. November 1st through March 31st

City Council just passed an ordinance to increase parking tickets as follows: $15 for all parking tickets except for Handicap and Winter Ordinance Violations which are $25.


If tickets are not paid within 30 days the fine goes up to $50 and your license plates will be suspended.

On Tuesday, Nov. 4th, remember to vote.  From the governor's race to county offices...your vote counts!  You will see a local referendum question on the ballot that asks residents whether or not to allow the School District of New London to exceed the revenue limit by the amount of $500,000 for each of the upcoming four years for facilities maintenance, improved security in our schools, and literacy resources for our K-12 readers. The majority of these dollars would go toward roof repairs. If the referendum passes, the tax impact for one year on a $150,000 home would be $6 per year or 50� per month.  Click here for additional information  on the School District of New London Referendum. For additional information contact Dr. Kathy Gwidt or Joe Marquardt at (920) 982-8530.
