A parking permit may be obtained for downtown residents to park overnight in the downtown area, exempt from the no parking from 3am - 5am restrictions. This does not exempt residents from the two hour limit during business hours. Other special parking permits may be obtained with approval of the Safety Service Director and Chief of Police. These permits are usually for dumpster or other construction equipment parking  on the street for a specified period. Contact the PD for permit requests or more information.
