NWS is predicting almost 7 inches of snow and some ice over the next 12 hours.  Several accidents have already been reported.

Many of the accidents are non life threatening injuries, or no injuries at all according to sources.

This accident is just one of many that are being reported. This one in the photo was at Perryville and Riverside. Unknown on injuries.

Reminder: If you are involved in an accident inside the city of Rockford, and there are NO injuries and the vehicles are drivable, then you need to go file an accident report at the Rockford Police Department in person.

SNOW EMERGENCY DECLARATION

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CAR IS PARKED?

February 11, 2019

  • THE CITY OF ROCKFORD PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT HAS DECLARED A CITYWIDE SNOW EMERGENCY BEGINNING TONIGHT, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2019 AT 9:00 PM. THE ODD/EVEN PARKING WILL BE IN EFFECT UNTIL THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT DEEMS IT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY.   UPDATES TO THE SNOW EMERGENCY WILL BE PROVIDED AT APPROPRIATE TIMES THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF THE STORM. 

 

  • STREET DIVISION EMPLOYEES WILL CONTINUE  SALTING AND PLOWING ARTERIAL STREETS .    DECISIONS ABOUT FURTHER DEPLOYMENT WILL BE MADE AS NEEDED.

 

  • THE CITY OF ROCKFORD OR ITS CONTRACTORS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PLOWING ALLEY WAYS.

 

  • THE ODD/EVEN PARKING IS IN EFFECT SO THAT THE PLOWS CAN SAFELY GO DOWN THE STREETS.   THE NEXT DAY WHEN THE PARKING CHANGES TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET, THE PLOWS MAY OR MAY NOT RETURN TO CLEAR THE OTHER SIDE.  IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, PLEASE REMOVE YOUR VEHICLE FROM THE STREET.  IF UNABLE TO, PLEASE OBSERVE THE ODD/EVEN PARKING.

 

  • EFFECTIVE AS OF 8:00 AM  TODAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2019, CARS SHOULD BE PARKED ON THE ODD NUMBERED SIDE OF THE STREET.

 

  • AS OF 8:00 AM TOMORROW, FEBRUARY 12, 2019, CARS ARE TO BE PARKED ON THE EVEN NUMBERED SIDE OF THE STREET.

 

  • CARS PARKED IN VIOLATION OF THE ODD/EVEN PARKING WILL BE TICKETED.

 

WHAT DOES THE ODD/EVEN PARKING  MEAN TO ME?

 

In order for our crews to remove snow and ice from city streets, we must have the ability to safely and effectively maneuver a plow up and down our streets.   If a snow or ice storm reaches the point that streets are becoming difficult to clear, city officials can declare a Snow Emergency.  A Snow Emergency requires that vehicles be parked on the odd side of the street when the date ends in an odd number and on the even side of the street when the date ends on an even number.  For example, on January 5th, you would park on the odd side of the street.  Police will issue parking tickets at the cost of $50.00 to vehicles that are parked on the wrong side of the street.  It’s safe to assume that if it’s snowing the Odd/Even Parking is in effect.

 

The residential area between 20th St. west to Kishwaukee St., Harrison Avenue north to Rural St. has been problematic for the City Crews to plow during past storms, due to vehicles parked on both sides of the street.  We would encourage citizens in this area to move their vehicles either off the street or to the appropriate side of the street as specified by the odd/even parking.

 

IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER

 

  • If your street is marked as “No Parking” on one side of the street, the Snow Emergency Declaration allows you to park legally in the restricted area during the time that the Snow Emergency Declaration is in effect.

 

  • Do not assume that you can move your car when the street is plowed. Your car must remain parked appropriately until after the Snow Emergency has been lifted.

 

  • All vehicles must be moved to the correct side of the street at 8:00 a.m.

 

February 11, 2019 – The City of Rockford Public Works Department began plowing Arterial Routes at 6:15 PM.  Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing conditions.

Citizens are urged to follow at a safe distance behind snowplows. This will prevent the salt that is being spread from hitting your vehicle and the added distance also allows a driver room to back up if needed.

 


When we are not in a snow operation, we handle individual requests as needed.
Please contact us at 779-348-7260.

Decisions about further deployment will be made as needed, according to developing conditions.

The City of Rockford or its contractors are NOT responsible for plowing alley ways.

Wintry precipitation is moving into portions of north central Illinois and northwest Indiana this afternoon. The wintry mix will continue to spread northeast through the remainder of the afternoon hours, and could cause a slower evening commute.

Precipitation will continue spreading northward across the area through early evening, then continue tonight through much of Tuesday. A wide array of precipitation types are expected for most locations during this time. Plan on hazardous travel conditions primarily north of a line from Pontiac to Kankakee to DeMotte.

Note: We have already contacted the FBI and RPD  before posting this article and they are going to look into this and investigate to see if the DNA matches.


As many of you know recently a man named Randy Pierson was fatally shot during a traffic stop on 20 near Montague, while a Rockford Police officer fired off many rounds.  Police say Mr. Pierson took his own life.

Not a lot of details have been released about the incident or suspect.

After the photo of Mr. Pierson came public, some have told us he looks IDENTICAL to a flyer that police released in Indiana of a man who allegedly murdered two teens.

Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13 were murdered while hiking in the woods just east of Delphi Indiana on Feb. 14, 2017.

indystar.com

The teens were able to capture their killers photo and voice on their cell phones, just prior to being killed. The police used that evidence to composite a sketch of the alleged killer.

Take a look at the photo at the top of this article and I will also post it below too.  And let us know, what you think. Do you think this is the same person? 

Info on the killings at https://www.indystar.com/story/news/2018/02/10/delphi-murders-heres-what-we-know-year-after-slayings-abby-and-libby/326442002/

And at https://www.in.gov/isp/delphi.htm

Police have yet to release information or make any statements, if these two incidents are related.

Any tips on the double murders, you can call at 844-459-5786


DELPHI HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION

Listen to the public service announcement from the Indiana State Police:

ISP Delphi PSA 2-25

The Delphi Police Department, the Carroll County Sheriff, the Indiana State Police, and the FBI are asking for your assistance in identifying the suspect in the double homicide of two teenage girls, Abigail J. “Abby” Williams, 13, and Liberty Rose Lynn “Libby” German, 14, both from Delphi.

On Monday, February 13th, at approximately 1:00 p.m., the two young girls were let off near the Monon High Bridge, an abandoned rail bridge over Deer Creek to walk around and hang out. They were to be picked up later in the afternoon, but did not show up there at the previously arranged time. Following an extensive search, at approximately 12:15 p.m. on February 14, 2017, the bodies of the two girls were found in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail, approximately one-half mile upstream from the bridge.

On Wednesday, February 15th, law enforcement officers distributed a photograph of a person observed on the Delphi Historic Trail. The photograph appears to depict a white male wearing blue jeans, a blue coat/jacket, and a hoodie. During the course of the investigation, preliminary evidence has led investigators to believe the person, in the distributed photograph, is a suspect in the investigation of the homicides of Abigail Williams and Liberty German.

Additionally, investigators have released a voice recording, extracted from a video found on Liberty “Libby” German’s cell phone, that may be connected to the homicides. Click one of the following links to download the recording:
