Snow & Ice Control

City crews are responsible for plowing and deicing the more than 180 miles of city streets. Snow and ice must be removed from public sidewalks within 48 hours. On-street parking is prohibited any time snowplowing or snow removal operations are in progress.


It is a violation of city ordinance to place snow within the public street or walkway because it creates a public safety hazard for vehicles and pedestrians.
