As of December 29, 2015, the City of Freeport has declared a SNOW EMERGENCY. Effective immediately the WINTER PARKING REGULATIONS are in effect for the next 48 hours. Refer to city ordinance: "486.03, Parking Prohibited Under Certain Conditions."

Winter Parking Regulations apply every year from December 1 to March 31. A “Snow Event” is defined as any time the Public Works Director declares that a snow event of one or more inches will occur or has occurred. The snow event shall continue for a period of forty-eight hours thereafter. You must park on the even-numbered side of street (generally north and west) on even days of the month. Odd days of the month, you must park on odd-numbered side of street (generally east and south). Streets that have designated parking on one side only for an entire city block are exempt. 8:00 am is the beginning hour for all streets in the City, excepting the Business District where odd-even parking does not apply.

Watch for posting of snow events on local media and on our website. The City will notify the following of Winter Parking Regulations: Freeport Police Department, Journal Standard, WEKZ, Big Radio FM102.1, WIFR, WREX, WTVO, 1440 WROK.
