The citywide snow emergency declared by the Watertown Police Department Thursday continues through 7 a.m. on Saturday. This means that parking on all city streets and alleys will be banned from the hours of 11 p.m. Friday night and 7 o'clock Saturday morning.
The snow emergency is a response to the winter weather advisory issued to Jefferson and Dodge Counties by the National Weather service. Total snow accumulations of 2-4 inches with localized amounts of up to 6 inches are expected.
Residents who have no off-street parking available are encouraged to utilize municipal parking lots or make arrangements with neighbors, relatives or friends to avoid a potential $50 citation. In addition, any vehicle that has been ticketed and remains parked at the same location for 24 or more hours afterward may be towed at the owner's expense.
