Snow Removal Guidelines

Snow Diagram.jpg

As we enter the winter months, it is important for residents to remember to follow proper snow removal procedures.
It is a violation to remove snow from one parcel of property and deposit it onto another parcel (including the adjacent public parkway) without consent of the property owner. Some snow removal companies push snow from one property, across public streets, and onto the parkway on the opposite side of the street. Depositing snow in this manner can damage property, create a nuisance, and hamper sight lines from adjacent properties. The code does provide an exemption to allow plow operators to deposit snow on the City parkway located immediately adjacent to and on the same side of street as the property from which the snow is being removed.

Property owners should inform their private snow removal companies of the Snow Removal Ordinance provisions. Snow plow operators observed improperly depositing snow in violation of the ordinance will be cited; however, residents are ultimately responsible for compliance and may also be cited.

As a reminder, it is responsibility of abutting property owners or merchants to clear the sidewalks after every snow event. Public sidewalk routes will be plowed after accumulations Snow Removal Guidelines of 4 inches. This process of clearing residential
sidewalks can take up to 72 hours as streets and high pedestrian foot traffic areas take priority.
