Winter Parking Ban

The Winter Parking Ban will begin Wednesday, November 1, 2023 and will run through Monday, April 1, 2024. There is No Parking on any city street between the hours of 1:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m. during this time period.

Vehicles owners not complying with the Winter Parking Ban are subject to a $75.00 fine under Marquette City Code Sec. 46-67(28). Vehicle owners could also be subject to having their vehicle towed if it is impeding snow removal efforts by the plow crews.

Vehicle owners are encouraged to make off-street parking arrangements for their vehicles for the winter as soon as possible. Cooperation by everyone will make it easier for the crews to do their job and make the roads safer for everyone.

Fall Leaf Collection and Placement

As fall brush and leaf cleanup preparations begin, please remember not to place leaves in the road or along the curb line. This causes leaves to collect in the storm drains and creates flooding in the streets. This sediment is also entering the storm drain system with the potential of plugging the storm water main.

Leaves must be placed behind the curb line, not in the street. Residents not complying will be in violation of Section 38-22(c) of the Marquette City Code. We are also reminding motorists to avoid parking in positions that block access to leaf piles, or they will not be picked up.

The collection schedule is as follows:

Brush Collection: October 23 – 27

Leaf Collection: October 30 – November 10

Please visit the City of Marquette website for further information.

City of Marquette Participating in Statewide Early Voting Pilot Program


Voters registered in the City of Marquette will have the ability to vote early in this November’s election. The City is one of several municipalities statewide working in partnership with the State of Michigan to conduct an early voting pilot program this year.

The Peter White Public Library, located at 217 N. Front Street, has been selected as the early voting site location for registered voters in the city. City voters will have the option of casting an early ballot in the days leading up to the November 7 election; the early voting site will be open Thursday, November 2 – Sunday, November 5, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Early voting is simply an additional option for voters. Absentee balloting procedures remain unchanged, and the City’s standard in-person Election Day precincts will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Beginning next year, early voting will be an option for all Michigan voters, as guaranteed by Proposal 2 of 2022, which was approved by Michigan voters last year.
