Declared Snow Emergency
The City of Madison declares a Snow Emergency when we need to plow all residential streets. This most often happens when there are three or more inches of snow on the roads.
During a Snow Emergency, people who park in the Snow Emergency Zone must follow alternate side parking rules for the next two nights. A Snow Emergency may be extended past the 48 hours if needed.
We will always declare a Snow Emergency before 9:00 pm on the night it will take effect.
Please note: During a Snow Emergency, Alternate Side Parking fines are $60, plus a $65 towing fee.
Don't let the snow lead to a ticket or a tow!
