Sweeping & Plowing

The City of Chelsea maintains a General Ordinance regarding no parking on City streets between 2am and 5am daily.  This time is dedicated to the City Public Works Department for street sweeping and snow plowing.  The City recognizes that there will be special circumstances (for example, construction or driveway work) requiring the need for overnight street parking.  The City will issue a temporary parking permit for short periods of time in these instances. You can obtain a temporary parking permit at the Chelsea Police Department at 311 S. Main Street.

The City has several areas that have mailbox posts installed at the curb.  These mailboxes conflict with snow plows and street sweepers if too close to the curb.  The City Council has adopted the Washtenaw County Road Commission's 'Procedures for the Installation of Mailboxes and Newspaper Delivery Boxes'.  The City cannot be held liable for damage to mailboxes or newspaper delivery boxes that do not comply with this procedure. The link below describes the Washtenaw County Road Commission policy on delivery boxes.
