How long do I have to shovel my sidewalk after a snowfall?
It is the duty of owners of any real property fronting or abutting upon any sidewalk to keep the sidewalk free and clear from snow and ice at all times. Property owners have 48 hours after the snowfall has stopped to remove snow and ice from their sidewalk. Owners of corner lots are responsible for clearing the sidewalk through to the street. If snow and ice has not been removed within 48 hours, the city may remove the snow and ice and assess costs against the property owner. The owner may also be cited for noncompliance and fined.

To report someone for not clearing their sidewalk, please call code enforcement at 626-7017.
