Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com

From the city of Rockford:

Please contact the Street Division at 779-348-7260 with questions.

SNOW EMERGENCY DECLARATION

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CAR IS PARKED? – January 18, 2019

  • THE CITY OF ROCKFORD PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT HAS DECLARED A CITYWIDE SNOW EMERGENCY BEGINNING TODAY, FRIDAY, JANUARY 18, 2019, EFFECTIVE 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 PLOWING ARTERIAL STREETS . CONTRACTORS BEGIN PLOWING RESIDENTIAL STREETS SOMETIME THIS EVENING.
  • 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 9:00 PM TODAY, JANUARY 18 , 2019, CARS SHOULD BE PARKED ON THE EVEN NUMBERED SIDE OF THE STREET.
  • AS OF 8:00 AM TOMORROW, JANUARY 19, 2019, CARS ARE TO BE PARKED ON THE ODD 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.

Residential Plowing Operation

January 19, 2019 –

The City of Rockford’s Contractors will begin plowing Residential Routes at 1:00 AM. The City of Rockford Public Works Department will continue plowing and salting Arterial Routes and the Snow Emergency and Odd/Even parking remain in effect.  Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing conditions.

When we’re not in an operation, you can make a plow or salt request by calling 779-348-7260 for 24 hour assistance.

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.

Please contact the Street Division at 779-348-7260 with questions.

 


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.


The End of Your Driveway

The City’s crews and contractors use side discharge plows. As the plows move forward, snow moves along the blade from the left to the right. The discharge from the blade is deposited along the curb or in the grass boulevard on the city right of way. This discharge, officially known as a “windrow”, ends up leaving a relatively small amount of snow in driveway approaches along the route. While we understand the aggravation this can cause, this natural result of plowing is unavoidable.

Your Mailbox

The goal of the Street Maintenance Department is to clear the streets for travel. No matter how hard we try, it is not possible to provide perfect conditions for your mail carrier. Final clearing adjacent to mailboxes is the responsibility of each resident.

Here’s the postcard we got from the postmaster last season regarding clearance to mailboxes:

Snow postcard

Street Section Supervisor – (779) 348-7260

  • The City is responsible for ice and snow control on City streets.
  • Residents are responsible for their sidewalks and alleys.
  • Neither snow nor ice from sidewalks or private property shall be deposited in the street or piled so high as to obstruct motorists’ view.
  • Where ice cannot be removed, the business shall use sand, salt, or other suitable substance that will prevent the ice from being dangerous.
  • Odd/Even parking is in effect during most snow clearing operations. Changes at 8 am.

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 and public works crews 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.

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.
  • The Odd/Even Parking is in effect so that 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.
  • 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.
