With temperatures soaring and rain battering the North Country, police in Saranac Lake have lifted the village's overnight parking ban.
Saranac Lake Village Police Chief Bruce Nason says the ban on overnight parking has been lifted, "pending any further inclement weather."
Village cops are reminding motorists and business owners that there is a two-hour parking limit on all downtown village streets and in the Berkley parking lot.
Nason notes that pleasant weather and increased tourist traffic will put parking at a premium downtown.
"The police department will be increasing our efforts to enforce parking violations," he said, adding that officers will pay extra attention to specific "no parking zones."
Those zones include handicap parking spaces, intersections, and driveways, Nason says.
"If a sign says that an area is a 'no standing' or 'no stopping' zone, please remember that these signs prohibit parking as well," he said.
Officials note that if the ever-unpredictable Adirondack weather takes a turn for the worse and snow begins to fall, vehicles must be removed from village streets or risk being ticketed.
