Impending Snow Storm Reminders
With the potential for the first significant snowfall of the season and artic cold immediately following the potential storm we are asking for your help. As a reminder, please follow ordinance https://www.ecode360.com/12457366#12457411 referencing no parking on city streets during winter months. For the safety of others please remember to clear any sidewalks and approaches within 24 hours of a snowfall. It does take time to clear the streets so we ask for your patience and cooperation as staff and other agencies work long hours to make streets and parking lots passable and safe especially with the potential for the potential duration of the impending snow storm. Finally, for your safety please remember to keep furnace exhaust and intake pipes clear of snow piles, gas meters on your homes clear of snow and the area around fire hydrants.

Snow not timely removed and ice not timely removed or sprinkled shall be deemed a public nuisance.

Plowing Snow onto Streets Prohibited
The owner or lessee of every lot or parcel in the City shall not by himself or his agent push, plow or otherwise deposit snow from within his lot line onto the public street or alley. Such action shall be considered a nuisance and subject to penalty as provided in Chapter 1-3.
