How do I know if the city has declared a Snow Emergency?
When 3 or more inches of snowfall occurs, the City declares a "Snow Emergency." Parking is prohibited on all streets until the snow emergency has been cancelled. Cars parked on a City street in violation of a Snow Emergency may be ticketed or towed. There is a $50.00 fine for parking in violation of a Snow Emergency.

Snow Emergency warnings are called in to local radio and TV stations. You may also check the city website and our Facebook or call the Department of Public Works at 608-837-3050.
