(KMOV) – The city of St. Louis will not be enforcing parking meter violations until Monday.

No parking enforcement until Monday so @StlStreets can clear off snow. That's on both snow routes and non-snow routes.

The St. Louis Treasurer’s office says police stopped issuing parking tickets this past Monday after more than 10 inches of snow was dumped on the city.

Some residents say they were confused after the treasurer’s office tweeted Tuesday and Wednesday that parking would be enforced on snow routes.

Parking will not be enforced today on non-snow routes. Parking will be enforced on snow routes.

But a spokesperson later said that would only apply if the city declared a snow emergency, which it didn’t.
