The City of Rockford started their salting operations.
December 22, 2022 –
The City of Rockford Public Works Department began salting
Arterial Routes at 9:30 AM today.
Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing
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.
City of Rockford Public Works:
What does the Odd/Even Parking Ordinance 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. If the snow emergency carries into the next day, at 8:00 AM your car should be moved to the even side of the street.
Police will issue parking tickets at the cost of $63.00 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.
