APPLETON — The Appleton Police Department ticketed 59 vehicles and had 42 of those towed for parking in the wrong spot during the city’s Class III snow emergency declaration.

The snow emergency, which took effect at 5 p.m. Wednesday, prohibited parking on all city streets until 9 a.m. today.

Sgt. Dave Lund, spokesman for the police department, said the number of $20 tickets and tows are comparable to those issued during previous snow emergencies. Tow prices are set by the tow companies.

Starting at 10 p.m. today, a Class I snow emergency will be in effect, which means overnight parking on city streets will be prohibited. Lund said police will ticket vehicles that violate the ban, but likely only will tow vehicles that snow plow drivers ask police to remove.
