Snow & Ice

Snow and Ice Removal

The City Municipal Code of Ordinances Chapter 16.06(2) and State Statute 66.0907(5) both require property owners to keep sidewalks clear of snow and ice for the safety of all in our community who use sidewalks during the winter.

If City Inspectors determine a sidewalk is unsafe, they may have it treated by a contractor and bill those charges (including a service fee) to the property owner. Unpaid bills will be added to the property taxes.

Need Help?

If you need physical assistance removing snow and/or ice from your sidewalk, consider asking your neighbors, friends, family, church groups, or other community volunteer organizations. They may be able to offer some free help or suggestions. Your Alderperson might have some additional ideas for you, such as the names of neighbors who are available to help. Paid snow and ice removal services are also available, such as those from landscaping and home improvement companies.
