Snow plowing and parking information link
As a result of the recent snowfall, City Public Works crews will be engaged in snow plowing and street maintenance activities for the next few days. The River
Falls Police Department encourages community members to be aware of parking restrictions including overnight and alternate parking rules and to make sure vehicles are lawfully parked. Unlawfully parked vehicles can hinder plowing activities and are subject
to ticketing and towing. Parking information can be found at the Police Department website at http://www.rfcity.org/police_home.asp or
by calling 715-425-0909. Citizen cooperation is greatly appreciated.
