Sidewalk Ordinance

Share

On Thursday December 17 City staff will begin issuing notices to residents who have not yet cleared their sidewalks from the previous snow event on Friday December 11. Please clear your sidewalks as soon as you can. You can find the city ordinance in it’s entirety below.


Chapter 136.03 states: The abutting property owner shall remove snow, ice, and accumulations promptly from sidewalks. If a property owner does not remove snow, ice, or accumulations within 24 hours, the City may do so and assess the costs against the property owner for collection in the same manner as a property tax. The abutting property owner may be liable for damages caused by failure to remove snow, ice, and accumulations promptly from the sidewalk.
