Snow Removal

As a part of the clearing process, your driveway or street parking location may have snow obstructing it. This is unavoidable in the snow removal process. A big help to our effort is the removal of vehicles from the roadway, so equipment can work curb to curb.

Please drive carefully and please clear fire hydrants near your home.  We appreciate your patience while we work to get to all parts of the city.

§ 297-51Depositing snow and ice from private property on public streets.

No owner, tenant or occupant of any premises abutting on any street shall throw, place or deposit snow or ice into or on any street, it being the intent and purpose of this provision to prohibit all persons from throwing, casting, placing or depositing snow and ice which accumulates within the private property belonging to that person on the sidewalks or streets of the city.
