City of Madison declares snow emergency


MADISON (WKOW) -- The City of Madison has declared a snow emergency. Alternate side parking restrictions will now be in effect throughout the entire city, including the downtown/isthmus snow emergency zone.

The snow emergency will remain in effect until at least 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday. Officials want to remind everybody that residents who must park on the street Sunday evening should park on the odd house numbered side of the street. Cars parked on the street Tuesday evening should be parked on the even house numbered side of the street.

City officials say violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 and violators could be towed. 

Residents are also reminded that all daytime parking restrictions will be enforced. That includes restrictions which ban parking on selected blocks in the Downtown/Isthmus area and on the near east and near west sides. Parkers should pay attention to all parking signs.
City officials say 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.
When parking in the ramps overnight, do not park on the top level so this area can be plowed. Be aware that vehicles stored in city ramps longer than 48 hours are subject to being ticketed and towed. Meters in lots and ramps are enforced 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
Parking is also available at the Brittingham Park Shelter parking lot off of W. Washington AV.
Madison residents can get complete snow emergency information at or by calling 261-9111.
