The cities of Janesville and Beloit have declared snow emergencies starting Monday evening.

Both cities are ordering cars off the streets because of expected snowfall Monday afternoon that could amount to 3 inches.

Janesville’s emergency starts at 5 p.m.

Beloit’s is set for 10 p.m. Monday through 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Janesville’s emergency requires parked vehicles to be off the streets and public parking lots “until snow plowing operations are complete,” according to a city news release. Violators face tickets and $20 fines.

Beloit will ticket and/or tow violators at the owners’ expense, according to the city website.

Janesville plans to maintain main and arterial streets throughout the snowfall. A full plow is expected to begin after the snow tapers off Monday evening.

“The full plow is not expected to be completed until early Tuesday, although every effort will be made to complete residential streets as soon as possible,” the release states.
