Snow Removal:

All public sidewalks adjoining your property must be shoveled as soon as possible after each snowfall. Typically, inspections will be performed on the first business day 24-hours after each snowfall. You will receive one notification letter each season before the City will shovel your walk for you and bill you for the service. Please make arrangements to have your walks shoveled if you will be away for an extended period during the winter.

Snow and ice removed from sidewalks and driveways must not be disposed of in streets or alleys. Property owners on corner lots are asked to keep access ramps open so all citizens are able to use the sidewalks. Also, for your safety, clear snow away from any fire hydrants.

 

Snow Emergency:

All vehicles and equipment shall be parked on the side with even addresses on even numbered calendar days and on the side with odd numbered addresses on odd numbered calendar days. Snow emergencies shall commence on 6:00 p.m. and shall continue until 6:00 p.m. of the next day. The applicable calendar date for designated parking sides shall be the date the snow emergency is declared. If a snow emergency is declared, vehicles and/or equipment may be towed if they are parked in violation of the snow emergency parking regulations. This policy was implemented to prevent parked cars from keeping City crews from plowing “curb to curb”. Crews can do a better job when cars are not parked on the streets. If possible, the City asks that residents park their vehicles off the street during snow plowing operations.
