Parking Requests
Overnight parking is not allowed on any Village street outside of the central business district, including residential areas and public streets outside of the downtown area, from the hours of 1:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.  Parking is not allowed in the central business district from 2:00 a.m. – 5:00 a.m.  The streets must be clear overnight in order to safely conduct street cleaning and snow removal operations.  Also, when vehicles are parked or abandoned on the street at night, they can be targets of theft and vandalism. Keeping vehicles off the streets overnight allows our patrol officers and residents to easily identify vehicles that may not belong to a resident or a guest.  We understand that there are times when our residents will need to park on the street, such as if a driveway were being re-paved, if the driver is a care provider, or if residents are hosting overnight guests.  If you need to park overnight on the street, please click here to register the vehicle(s).  Each vehicle is limited to only twelve (12) occurrences per year. 

Vehicle Lockouts
Members of the department are available to assist when you lock your keys inside your vehicle.

Animal Control

Our Public Service Officers and Police Officers will assist with lost or found pets, and can refer residents to organizations which assist with special trapping requests of nuisance animals or report problems involving wild animals such as deer or coyotes. It is not legal for residents to set any type of trap for wild animals.  For more information regarding your and your pet's safety when coyotes are in the area, please click here.  For more information regarding found animals such as birds or rodents, visit Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation
