Officials in Cedar Falls have issued a snow emergency for two areas of the city.

Parking downtown and on College Hill will be prohibited from 8 PM Tuesday until 7 AM Wednesday so city crews can haul snow away.

According to city ordinance, parking is prohibited on each street marked with a sign displaying the words "Snow Emergency Route". Cedar Falls Public Safety officers also plan to place "no parking" signage in the areas to correlate with the declaration, a press release said.

Starting at 11 PM Tuesday, any vehicle blocking traffic or parking in the designated areas will be subject to a citation and tow at owner's expense. Motorists should utilize municipal lots while the snow emergency is in effect.
