As the snow comes in overnight into Sunday, Moline Public Works said it will have 12 vehicles out on the roads -- each covering every part of the city to handle the snow.

Moline says it has the ability to roll out a total of 25 vehicles to handle snow removal and does expect it will have all those trucks on the road Sunday.

Public works listed some important things to note while these crews are at work -- do not park on the street if at all possible. It will make things easier for workers -- and the city says your car can be towed if it's parked in two inches of snow on the street.

Meantime in Davenport -- the public works director said salt trucks and plows have been out on the roads all day Saturday.

Main roads have also been pre-treated with a salt-liquid.

Davenport will also have up to 55 vehicles out on the roads over night and tomorrow. The city has declared a snow emergency -- so that means no parking on snow routes. And for others, it means parking on the even side of the street on even numbered days and the odd side on odd numbered days. If you don't follow the rules set in place by the city, your car could be towed.

And for anyone considering heading out on the roads during the weather, Davenport and Moline public works said don't if you don't have to.

Davenport's snow emergency lasts until 3 p.m. Sunday. A second one will go into effect at 9 p.m. Sunday.
