When snowstorms are forecast, we ask that everyone park off of the street if you are able. This will enable the street department to push the snow back closer to the curb the first time and will possibly reduce the number of times your driveway will be closed by the snowplow when they come back to widen the streets.
Owners, occupants or tenants are required to remove all snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours after it ceases to fall (make a path at least 30″ wide). Snow and ice that cannot be removed without injury to the sidewalks shall be treated with salt, sand or other abrasive material. Snow should not be thrown into the streets but piled at the curb line where it will not impede clearing operations or traffic movement. You are not permitted to blow or shovel snow into the travel lane of any roadway! If you are cited, violating this ordinance brings a fine of $300 or up to 90 days in jail for each day the violations exists.
