Press release submitted byPatrick Driscoll, city of Davenport

It's that time of year again and Davenport Public Works Director Mike Clarke is declaring a Snow Emergency. The Snow Emergency will be in effect beginning at 6 AM on Thursday morning and lasting until 6 AM on Friday morning. To avoid being ticketed, residents of Davenport should move their cars off of the posted snow routes.

For non-emergency snow routes, since it's an even calendar day, we ask that residents park on the even side of the street so as to allow more room for snow plows to travel down narrow streets.
