Vehiclesparked on the street Monday evening December 9th should be parked on the EVENhouse numbered side of the street. Violations of the alternate side parking rules are punishable by a fine of $60 throughout the entire City of Madison. Violators could also be towed.

The Snow Emergency will remain in effect until at least 7 a.m. on Tuesday December 10th.

Residents are 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.

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.
