From the city of Rockford:

Our Snow Operation team will continue to monitor the weather and street conditions. If the storm reaches the point that streets are becoming difficult to clear, city officials may declare a Snow Emergency, which 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. Please remember, if we start a residential plowing operation, it takes 144 snowplows between 12 and 14 hours to complete the entire city. The Snow Hotline at 779-348-7260
