Press Release

November 29, 2019

The City of Richland Center wants to remind residents that Alternate Side Parking began on Sunday December 1st, this is a change from previous years, and will run through February 28, 2020. Persons parking vehicles on city streets are required to abide by Alternate Side Parking regulations EACH NIGHT between December 1st and February 28, 2020.

Alternate Side Parking enforcement will take place randomly throughout the week in addition to when the city receives an accumulation of snow and/or ice. Alternate Side Parking will be enforced between the hours of 12:01 AM and 7:00 AM.

Alternate Side Parking requires vehicles to be parked on the odd numbered side of the street on odd numbered dates and the even numbered side of the street on even numbered dates. Residents need to remember that the date during the overnight hours of 12:01 am to 7:00 am determines odd or even side parking. Owners of vehicles in violation of Alternate Side Parking regulations will be subject to a $10.00 parking ticket.

During a period of unusually severe winter weather, the city may declare a Snow Removal Emergency. During a Snow Removal Emergency, parking is prohibited on all city streets and highways. Residents would be required to find off-street parking for up to 72 hours or until snow-removal operations are declared completed by the Public Works Superintendent. Violations of a Snow Removal Emergency will result in a $15.00 ticket.

In addition to tuning into WRCO, the City of Richland Center urges residents to sign up for Nixle alerts to keep up to date on local information including declared Snow Emergencies. You can sign up at www.nixle.com. Make sure to sign up for all alerts, advisories and community messages under the Richland County Emergency Management account. The service is free and you can choose to receive e-mail and/or text message alerts.

Click It or Ticket Safety Belt Enforcement

RICHLAND CENTER POLICE DEPARTMENT

Press Release
May 15, 2019

Richland Center Police Department to mobilize for Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement from May 20th to June 2nd.

Chief Lucas Clements points out that this year marks the 10-year anniversary of Wisconsin’s primary enforcement seat belt law. Since the law took effect in June of 2009, Wisconsin’s seat belt use rate has climbed from 74 percent in 2009, to just over 89 percent today. Over the last decade alone, numerous motorists in Wisconsin have avoided serious injury or death thanks to the simple click of a seat belt.

Still, law enforcement and other emergency responders see far too many people who make the dangerous – and frankly – irresponsible decision to not wear a safety belt. Last year, about half of the car and truck occupants killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes were not buckled up. These needless tragedies devastate families and generate enormous societal costs. Chief Clements states, “As part of our larger public safety mission, the Richland Center Police Department will join law enforcement agencies across Wisconsin as part of the national Click It or Ticket mobilization May 20 to June 2.”

Across our state and nation, officers will work in greater numbers for longer hours – not to simply stop and cite motorists – but to encourage everyone to voluntarily comply with traffic laws that serve to keep the public safe. During Click It or Ticket – and throughout the year – our goal is to ensure that all motorists are safely buckled up – every seat, every trip.
