Most home owners and occupants must remove snow and ice from their sidewalk within 24 hours of the end of any snowfall. If there is a fire hydrant in front of your house, please keep it completely clear of snow - the home you save could be your own.
Do not throw snow into the street without specific permission from the Public Works Director. Throwing snow into the street can cause unsafe driving conditions, and City plows and other vehicles can push the snow right back onto your sidewalk when they pass, so throw the snow toward the side of the sidewalk that's away from the street.
The Police and Street Departments both ask that all residents help keep their neighborhoods safe by shoveling the wheelchair curb cuts at intersections, and pay particular attention to sidewalks and crosswalks in school zones.
If you are able, help your neighbors with their sidewalks and driveway approaches. Despite the cold, it will make you feel all warm inside.
