Janesville declares snow emergency--really
JANESVILLE— The city of Janesville has declared a snow emergency starting at 5 p.m. today, Friday.
All parked vehicles must be removed from city streets and public parking lots until snow plowing is complete. Violators are subject to a $20 ticket.
The city issued an errant snow emergency alert Thursday afternoon because of a computer malfunction, officials said, but this one is for real.
If you are unable to park in a driveway or garage, vehicles can be parked in one of six downtown municipal parking lots in a designated snow emergency parking stall.
-- East Wall Street lot at East Wall Street and North Parker Drive
-- Municipal Building lot at West Wall Street and North Jackson Street
-- South High Street lot at West Court Street and South High Street
-- Senior Center lot at St. Lawrence Avenue and Water Street
-- Hedberg Public Library lot on Water Street
-- River/Union Street lot at South River Street and Union Street
-- Parking ramp at North Parker Drive and East Wall Street.
Fines for parking on the streets during a snow emergency are $20. Police may begin issuing tickets to violators before plowing operations begin.
Residents can get additional snow emergency information on the city’s website here or by calling (608) 755-SNOW. To report problems or concerns, call 755-3110.
