Frequently Asked Questions On Snow Responsibilities

Q: Am I responsible for cleaning the city sidewalk in front of my property? 
A: Yes. Please remove snow within 24 hours after a snowfall. All snow removed from the city sidewalk and private driveway is to be kept on your property. You should not shovel this snow into the street. This creates a problem for you and others in the area. (Businesses downtown are exempt from this restriction.) 

Q: Who is responsible for removing the ridge of snow that the plow left behind in my back lane? 
A: You are. Residents are responsible for the removal of such ridges to allow passage into their private property. 

Q: Will the City open the access to our property? 
A: No, this is the resident's responsibility.
