The Town of Orono has a "parking ban" from November 1 to April 15. Motor vehicles must be parked in off-street locations between 12 midnight and 8:00 am. During a major snowstorm, the Public Works Department has to plow the streets in the daytime. Vehicles in residential areas are required to be parked off-street at these times to aid in snow removal. If owners of motor vehicles do not comply, they can be fined from $10 to $100 each day, or vehicles can be towed.
