The Village of Mount Horeb residents are reminded that winter parking regulations go into effect in the village on December 1 and continue in effect until March 31.

On even numbered days of the month, vehicles may be properly parked between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on even building numbered side of the street.

On odd numbered days of the month, vehicles may be properly parked between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on the odd building numbered side of the street.

DOWNTOWN PARKING PROHIBITED: No person shall park a vehicle in any municipal parking lot or on either side of any of the following public streets in the village between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. during the months of December, January, February or March:

  • On Main Street between Washington and Fourth Streets

  • On First Street and S. Second Street between Main and Lincoln Streets
  • On N. Second Street and N. Third Street between E. Main Street and the alley immediately north of Main Street
  • On N. Grove Street between W. Main Street and the Senior Center/Youth Center driveway.

There are some exceptions for cul-de-sacs and areas where there is only parking allowed on one side of the street.

If payment of a parking ticket is not made within five days, a warning letter will be sent via mail. This notice will indicate that payment will need to be made within five days. In addition, if payment is not received within the first five days, the amount of the parking ticket will increase from $15.00 to $20.00. If payment is not made within the five day time frame on the warning letter, the vehicle registration will be suspended, privileges to register any vehicle in the State of Wisconsin will be denied, and an administrative fee will be assessed.

If you wish to contest a parking ticket, you must complete a Request to Review Parking Citation form. You can request this form by contacting the Mount Horeb Police Department or on this website under the Contact Us tab. Fill this form out only if you feel the citation was issued in error. If your vehicle was illegally parked, then your request will be denied. Examples of citations issued in error are; vehicles that are exempted by state statute, vehicles that are illegally parked due to a documented medical emergency, or you have previously notified the Mt. Horeb Police Department of a vehicle breakdown, etc.

You may NOT fill out this form if:

  • You have received a "Final Notice" or if it has been longer than five business days since the date of issue; or
  • You have been notified by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation that your vehicle registration has been suspended.

If you have received a FINAL NOTICE, you must pay the amount shown on the FINAL NOTICE.

If you do not agree with the decision made after you have completed the Request to Review Parking Citation form, you may request to have this matter heard before the Mount Horeb Municipal Court. You must request a court date by contacting the Mount Horeb Police Department within five business days of this notice.  Requesting a Court Date: To contest the citation(s), you must contact the Mount Horeb Police Department within five business days of the "denial" or within 10 business days from the original date of issue if a "request for review" was not submitted. The parking citation will be reissued with a Uniform Traffic Citation. The citation will include court costs that will increase the fine amount. These costs cannot be removed once the citation is issued. If you do not prevail in court, you will be responsible for these costs.

For further information or clarification, call the Mount Horeb Police Department at 437-5522 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
