Emergency Snow Route Information

During the winter season, the city will declare a winter storm emergency if there is a forecast of two or more inches of snow. 

During this time, an on-street parking ban will be put into effect on designated snow routes and all vehicles must be removed from the street at that time. The parking ban will be posted through local media, the City of Marshalltown website and Facebook page. Review the emergency snow route map

Keeping our roads clear is a citywide partnership to ensure safe travel for our community.
