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:

  • A snow emergency will automatically go into effect when snow accumulation reaches two inches. The snow emergency will stay in effect until the streets have been cleared.
  • Vehicles are not allowed to be parked on any public street during a snow emergency, except in certain designated angle parking areas. This exception does not include the north side of the 100 block of East Bryant Street.
  • Vehicles illegally parked on city streets during a snow emergency will be subject to towing and/or a ticket.
