This is an important message from the Village of Niles. The Village of Niles would like to remind residents to park cars off of the street whenever possible during winter storms. Please use your driveway when possible. If parking on the street, avoid parking directly across the street from other cars, creating a bottleneck. Vehicles parked on the street can create a dangerous situation if emergency vehicles are unable to pass through. Snow and sleet are expected Friday evening and Saturday (January 17th and 18th). The Village of Niles thanks you for your cooperation in helping first responders keep Niles streets safe and clear.
