What to do in a snow emergency
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.
