Snow Removal from Sidewalks

Sidewalk Ordinance

To help ensure that sidewalks are safe during the winter, City ordinance (Ord. No. 5339, 12-10-91)  requires residents to remove snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours following the end of the snowfall. Property owners who do not comply are subject to a civil citation.

  • Clear your sidewalk after the snowplows have finished plowing to the curb.
  • City ordinance prohibits placing snow on any public street, sidewalk, or right-of-way.

Equipment operators often work 12 or more hours in a shift and appreciate the courteous and friendly drivers and pedestrians. Please help them to help you.
