Freeport, Illinois — On December 12, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. the Freeport Police issued a statement on their Facebook page that apparently on December 11, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. the city of Freeport had issued a snow emergency.
No mention of the snow emergency was listed on the city website however, the Public Works page and we received no press release or notification.
A snow emergency means that winter parking regulations will be in effect for 48 hours. Freeport’s parking ordinance will remain in effect until Tuesday, December 13, 2016 at 8:00 a.m.
During winter months, when a snow event has been declared, no person shall leave parked or standing any motor vehicle on the “even-numbered” side of a street in the City on an “odd-numbered” day of the month. Nor shall any such vehicle be parked or standing on the “odd-numbered” side of a street in the City on an “even-numbered” day of the month.
For the purpose of this Ordinance, “odd” and “even” numbered days shall be considered as beginning at the hour of 8:00 a.m. after such declaration is made.
