RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Police Department wants to remind city residents of winter parking regulations.
Its goal is to clear and maintain the streets when there's snow on the ground. No motor vehicle should be parked on a street, alleyway, or public parking lot between 3am-6am. Officer Claire Decker says there are different rules for different days of the week.
"On even numbered days, so second, fourth, sixth, things like that and so on, you have to park on even numbered addresses on that side," said Decker. "That same rule applies for odd numbered days."
The police department will be issuing tickets or towing vehicles that don't comply with the rules. The regulations went into effect today and will continue until April 1st.
RHINELANDER - 114 colorful flower baskets will soon flood the streets of downtown Rhinelander.
For eight years the master gardeners at Forth Floral have put their effort into making downtown appealing to visitors.
Every April, petunias--one of the easiest flowers to grow and maintain--are picked out by color and grown in the greenhouse.
After that, each basket is displayed in June and watered every day for the rest of the season.
Forth Floral co-owner Ruth Hempel knows the impact the flowers have on people.
"Oh, people just love the hanging baskets. It's just been a real boost, it's good for our community as well as all the visitors that come to town. It just makes downtown a really beautiful place," she said.
A committee works with downtown to fund a campaign to fund the planting and maintenance of the flowers.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the group is struggling to find people to help nurture the plants.
