The City of Watertown announced some citywide measures in an effort to stay ahead of the recent snowfall.
To assist the street department with their snow removal and cleanup efforts, the Watertown Police Department declared a snow emergency for the central city snow removal area. The snow emergency will go into effect at 11 p.m. tonight and run until 7 a.m. Friday morning.
During the snow emergency, parking is banned on all streets in the central city snow removal area. Parking will be allowed in all other areas of the city.
Residents who live in the central city snow removal area and 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.
Citizens are encouraged to monitor the Watertown Police Department web site at: www.watertownpolice.com or the City of Watertown website at: www.ci.watertown.wi.us/ or follow the Watertown Police Department on Facebook for up to date information.
