The snow has made parking a challenge in the north portion of the Ryan Field lot where your parking pass is valid. As long as the permit is hanging and the vehicle is not obstructing or blocking a lane, the vehicle should be fine. If you have observed these guidelines but still get a ticket, you may do the online appeal within ten days, or go to the Parking Office immediately, 1819 Hinman Avenue, Evanston. This address is on the ticket also.
