How long do I have to clear my sidewalk following a snow event?
- Sidewalks must be cleared within 24 hours after the snow has stopped. You will receive a warning and will be fined $200.00 for not properly clearing your sidewalk within the specified time.
- City Code 419.03: EVERY TENANT, OCCUPANT, OR PROPERTY OWNER HAVING THE CARE OR CHARGE OF ANY LAND OR BUILDING FRONTING ON ANY STREET IN THE CITY, WHERE THERE IS A SIDEWALK…WITHIN 24HRS AFTER THE FALL OF ANY SNOW OR SLEET, OR THE ACCUMULATION OF ICE CAUSED BY FREEZING RAINFALL, CAUSE THE SAME TO BE REMOVED FROM THE SIDEWALK.
- To report sidewalks that have not been cleared in a timely matter, contact 3-1-1 (7am-7pm, Monday through Friday, 24/7 online or voicemail) and it will be reported to Permits, Licenses and Inspections.
