Property owners are encouraged to keep their walkways cleared this winter, especially when you are out of town.
When removing snow, never push or blow snow from the property, sidewalk, or driveway into the street. Property owners are responsible for keeping their public sidewalks clear of snow and ice within 24 hours of accumulation. The City inspects uncleared sidewalks on a complaint basis, and property owners are notified of violations and given 24 hours to clear their sidewalks. If sidewalks remain uncleared upon re-inspection, the City will clear the snow and ice at the owner’s expense. To report an uncleared sidewalk, please call 712-707-4885 and provide the address of the property.
