Halifax Regional Council will meet Tuesday to discuss various items including possible changes to the winter parking ban.
A motion will be put forward when council meets to adopt winter operation service standards prepared by KPMG.
As it stands, the overnight winter parking ban — when in effect — runs from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. from Dec. 15 to March 31. Any vehicles in violation of the ban would be at risk of being ticketed $50 or towed.
But according to the staff report, ticket fees may be too low to help enforce the ban on the peninsula. The province is currently reviewing a motion passed at a previous council meeting to increase fines to $100.
Staff also recommends possibly implementing a 12-hour rolling parking ban in the downtown area with winter crews targeting every second street within the zones.
Council meets at 10 a.m. on Sept. 29.
