Residents asked to follow snow ordinance parking rules


ROCHELLE — The City of Rochelle Street Division has announced that the winter snow emergency parking ordinance is in effect for residential areas. 

On even dated days all vehicles are to be parked on the even-numbered sides of the street. On odd dated days parking is permitted on the odd-numbered sides of the street until snow is cleared.

It is unlawful for any person to deposit or cause to be deposited any snow upon any street or alley of the city that is cleared or scheduled for snow clearance. It is also unlawful for any person to deposit or cause to be deposited any snow in such a manner as to obstruct a public sidewalk, or to hamper vision at an intersection of traveled roadways. 

The City encourages citizens to clear the public sidewalks adjacent to their properties in the interest of public safety. State of Illinois Law does not hold citizens liable for claims arising from injuries that may occur on sidewalks that they have cleared as part of a good faith effort to make travel safer.
