When the City of Muscatine declares a snow emergency, "Alternate Side of Street" parking will be in effect. On odd-numbered days of the month, parking is permitted only on the odd-numbered side of the street. Likewise, parking is permitted only on the even-numbered side of the street on even-numbered days.
On all streets where parking is allowed on one side only, if the permitted side (where parking is allowed) is even numbered, vehicles can park on that side only on even-numbered days. If the permitted side (where parking is allowed) is odd-numbered, vehicles can park on that side only on odd-numbered days. No parking is ever allowed on the side of the street where parking is prohibited by posted sign. The transition time between the first and second day of a snow emergency is from 12 midnight until 8:00 a.m. Enforcement of the second snow emergency day does not begin until 8:00 a.m.
Downtown Central Business District (bounded by Mulberry, Third, Mississippi Drive and Pine Streets) is not affected by these parking rules.
Penalty - Vehicles in violation of these snow emergency regulations may be ticketed and towed. The ticket fee shall be in the amount of $35.00 per violation and the owner of the vehicle shall also be responsible for applicable towing and storage fees. Residents who have been towed will need to contact Midtown Towing at
