  1. The mayor’s office has a static posting of parking on the even side of the street. The Bridgeport Police Department goes by the Charter of alternating even/odd parking during snow emergencies. It would be nice if the Mayor’s Office and The BPT Police Dept actually synchronized their directions about snow emergency parking
