Fourth Ward Report

Get ready for Snow Emergency Season
Although fall just arrived, winter is around the corner. Stay in touch with the City of Minneapolis during Snow Emergencies. You can sign up to receive e-mail and text message alerts once a Snow Emergency is declared. This makes it possible to learn about Snow Emergencies at the office or when you’re on the road. We recommend you sign up for two or more of the following Snow Emergency alerts: email/text alerts, phone call alerts, or social media alerts. During a snow emergency use the Parking Rules App for Android or iPhones that tells you where you can and can’t park. Knowing when a Snow Emergency is in effect is one of the best ways to avoid a ticket and tow in the winter.
