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.

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


The City of Janesville has declared a snow emergency for Sunday, February 17th beginning at 6:00 P.M.

Snow and ice accumulations of approximately 3 or more inches have been forecasted for Sunday, February 17th through Monday, February 18th that will require City staff to complete a full plow. Main and arterial streets will be maintained throughout the duration of the snowfall event. Snow accumulations are expected to taper off late on Monday evening, after which the full plow will begin and all City streets will be cleared. The full plow is not expected to be completed until very early on Tuesday morning, although every e ffort will be made to complete residential streets as soon as possible. Please plan on keeping parked vehicles off the street until plows have completely removed snow from curb to curb.
