Alternate Side Parking

Alternate side parking is in effect. Please remember this becomes very important after a significant snow fall. Between the hours of 10:00P.M. and 6:00a.m. the following day, vehicles shall be parked only on even numbered sides of the street on those nights having an even calendar date, except where parking is normally permitted only on one side of the street, vehicles may be parked on that permitted side every night. These regulations will be in effect beginning 12:01 a.m. on December 1, 2020 through 12:01 a.m. on April 1, 2021.

Whether a date is even or odd shall be determined by the calendar date at 10:00p.m.

As always, there is no parking on the streets in the downtown area after 2:00am, and parking in public parking lots is limited to 24 hours.  If your vehicle is in a parking lot at the time it is plowed, you will need to move your vehicle to a different parking lot that has already been plowed to allow City Street personnel to clear snow in all parking lots.

If you have any questions please call:

Black River Falls Police Department at (715) 284-9155


City Hall at (715) 284-5514

Snow & Ice Removal


When it snows, please clear the sidewalk in front of your home or business to give students a safe walking route to school and to make it safe and enjoyable for others looking to get out there and walk. Property owners are required to keep the sidewalk in front of their property free of snow and ice throughout the winter. Snow and ice must be removed from the sidewalk within 24 hours from the time the snow stops. For those times when ice and/or snow are packed down and cannot be cleared, you need to keep the area sanded and/or salted. Let’s all pitch in and do our part to keep our city sidewalks safe for our children and other pedestrians!

Airport Commission appoints new Chairperson

Desiree Gearing-Lancaster was unanimously elected chair of the Airport Commission last week.

Also receiving unanimous approval were Tom Reid, vice-chairperson, and Joel Busse, secretary.

Dale Klevgard was appointed airport manager, and Brad Chown was appointed assistant airport manager.  Also during the meeting, Klevgard provided an update on the lighting project, which replaced the runway lights with LEDs, and also installed a new beacon and wind cone.  The project was funded by the Federal Transit Administration, Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Aeronautics and local funds.  A new snow blower is also needed for the airport to help protect the new LED lights. One option is to replace the current end loader the airport has or another option is to place a snow blower attachment to the current end loader.
