Some reminders before the snow flies

Some reminders before the snow flies
Posted on 11/29/2013

The colors of autumn have been gorgeous this year, but winter is just around the corner! Now is a good time to remember these important facts.

  • Residents must move parked cars off the street when there is any accumulation of snow until at least 24 hours after the storm has passed and the snow has been removed from the roadway. This prevents snowplows from having to make multiple passes on the same street, which in turn helps keep the city budget healthy.
  • Residents are responsible to clear the sidewalks adjacent to their property. Sidewalks need to be cleared of snow within a reasonable time on the same day the snow falls, unless the snowfall occurs after 8 p.m.  In that case, it can wait until the next morning but must be gone by 10 a.m.

Effective and timely snow removal prevents injuries and saves money. We appreciate the help of our residents in keeping our community safe.
