Let It Snow! And Be A Good Neighbor
Although we never know this far in advance, forecasts for our area say there is a good chance for some snow this year. With the potential for snow comes an opportunity for residents and business owners to show what good neighbors they can be. When it snows, we need to remove snow and ice from sidewalks so neighbors, children, and customers can travel safely. When sidewalks aren’t clear, people have to walk in the street or try to navigate dangerous patches of ice, so please be considerate of neighbors and the community and keep your sidewalks clear.
Would you be willing to help out your neighbor? If your neighbor needs assistance clearing off their sidewalk, offer to give them a hand after you finish clearing yours.
The City has regulations regarding snow removal. Residents have until noon after a night of snowfall and until 9 PM after a day of snowfall to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks. Businesses must keep their sidewalks clear between 9 AM and 5 PM. The full width of your sidewalk must be clear unless full-width clearing is not feasible, in which case, at a minimum, a continuous three-foot-wide path of the paved sidewalk must be cleared. Lastly, salt is strictly prohibited on sidewalks or within 10 feet of any trees to protect our sidewalks and trees.
