A snow emergency remains in effect for the entire City of Madison until 7 a.m. Friday February 4th. Residents are asked to keep their vehicles off the street today and tonight if possible. If you must park on the street this evening you should park on the EVEN house numbered side of the street. Details on winter parking restrictions are available at Violations of the alternate side parking restrictions during a snow emergency are punishable by a $60 fine.

Parking is available in the cashiered sections of city-owned ramps in the downtown area. During a declared Snow Emergency you can park for no charge at the City ramps from 9 p.m. until 7 a.m. If you enter before 9 p.m. or leave after 7 a.m. you are liable for any parking charges before 9 p.m. and from 7 a.m. until the time you leave.
