A snow emergency is declared when plowing is scheduled. Once the city of Janesville has declared a snow emergency, vehicles must be moved from streets and parking lots until the street or parking lot has been plowed and cleared of snow.


To determine if a snow emergency has been declared,


-Listen to radio station WCLO 1230 AM or WJVL 99.9 FM.


-Visit the city of Janesville Web site, www.ci.janesville.wi.us.

-Join the snow emergency e-mail alert list. To sign up, go to the city’s Web site and go to the tab on the left side of the page labeled “e-mail lists.”


-Call the snow hotline (608) 755-SNOW (7669).


Do not call 911.


The best place to park during a snow emergency is in your garage or driveway. If you are unable to park in a garage or driveway, park in one of the designated snow emergency parking stalls. These stalls are located in the six downtown municipal parking lots listed below:


-East Wall Street lot at East Wall Street and North Parker Drive.


-Municipal Building lot at West Wall and North Jackson streets.


-South High Street lot at West Court and South High streets.


-Senior Center lot at St. Lawrence Avenue and Water Street.


-Hedberg Public library Lot on Water Street.


-River/Union Street lot at South River and Union streets.


The fine for parking on the street during a snow emergency is $20. The police department might begin issuing tickets to violators before plowing begins.
