Snow Removal from Sidewalks

City residents are reminded of the City Ordinance requiring that any snow or ice accumulations on public sidewalks fronting their properties must be removed each day following any accumulation. Ice accumulations that cannot be removed must be treated with a deicing or abrasive agent.

Violations will result in the City removing the snow or treating the ice, with costs to do so assessed against the owner of the property. Only one warning will be issued per year. Repeat violations are also referred to the Police Dept. for citation purposes, which may result in additional fines along with the removal costs.    

Property owners are encouraged to inform tenants of their property of this requirement, as again, enforcement action is assessed to the property owner, not the tenant.

Small quantities of sand/salt mixture are available to City residents only, at the north side of the Public Works Dept. building at 640 S. Center St., 24 hours a day. This material is not available to any contractors.

In the interest of safety, and according to local laws, citizens/contractors may not shovel, plow or blow snow into the street or push snow across the street.
