The Porter County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone living in the unincorporated areas of Porter County about County Ordinance 10.020,, ‘Parking after Snowfall.’ The ordinance in summary means if there is expected to be 2+ inches of snowfall, vehicles must be moved from the roadway. Failure to move your vehicle, could result in your vehicle being towed at your expense and a County Ordinance citation with fines up to $50.00. This is very important, as it speeds up County Highway’s ability to clear the roadways safely as well as widen the roadway for emergency vehicles to have access to your house or your neighbors in the event of a
true emergency. Please refer to for information on the County Ordinance.
