In order for our crews to remove snow and ice from city streets, we must have the ability to safely and effectively maneuver a plow up and down our streets. If a snow or ice storm reaches the point that streets are becoming difficult to clear, city officials can declare a Snow Emergency.
A Snow Emergency requires that vehicles be parked on the odd side of the street when the date ends in an odd number and on the even side of the street when the date ends on an even number. For example, on January 5th, you would park on the odd side of the street. Police will issue parking tickets at the cost of $50.00 to vehicles that are parked on the wrong side of the street. It’s safe to assume that if it’s snowing the Odd/Even Parking is in effect.

The City of Rockford water has launched a new Interactive Lead Service Line Identification map in order to help minimize our customers exposure to lead in water. This interactive map will help assist customers in identifying where lead service lines are located and provide residents and businesses with information regarding public and private water service lines. It is important that customers are aware of their service line material, so they can make informed decisions on minimizing their exposure to lead in water.
Customers can simply click on the water drop located within the interactive lead service identification map to obtain information about their service. The information provided in the map was obtained from historical data, record drawings, plumbing inspections and service installations obtained over the years.
