The city of Janesville has declared a snow emergency beginning at 3 p.m. today, Monday.

All parked vehicles must be removed from city streets and public parking lots until snow has been removed from curb to curb.

Violators risk a $50 ticket.

Snow and ice accumulations have been forecast for Sunday through Monday that will require a full plow, according to a city news release.

“Main and arterial streets will be maintained throughout the duration of the snowfall event. Snow accumulations are expected to taper off on Monday evening, after which the full plow will begin and all city streets will be cleared,” according to the release.

“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.
