A downtown snow emergency has been declared in New Ulm for Wednesday.

City officials say it begins at 1:30 a.m. and will be in place until all of the snow is cleared.

During this time vehicles parked within the signed downtown snow emergency route will be tagged and towed.

Overnight parking during the snow emergency is available in the parking lot at 3rd North and German Street and in the City Hall parking lot, but the city is asking drivers not to park in anyone’s leased parking spaces.
