In the event of a significant winter snowstorm, the Police Department may issue a "snow emergency.” If a snow emergency is declared, all snow routes in the City must be clear of parked cars. Snow route streets are marked with blue and white signs.

The plows must be able to get through these designated areas to keep the streets open. During a snow emergency, if you do not move your vehicle from a snow route, you may receive a $50 parking ticket.

Snow emergencies are announced on the City of Monmouth Facebook page, as well as on local radio station AM 1330 (WRAM).
