Community Question Corner: What are the rules for snow this year?

It is illegal to move your snow onto the street or sidewalk. NOC 8-4-2. This is particularly problematic once the plows have already been through your area because the snow may be compacted by vehicles and turn into dangerous icy situations. If you see anyone violating this ordinance, please remind them of the city code and point them to this article for information. Also, please do not use vehicle-mounted snow plows to clear away snow from the city streets. Our employees will get to your area as quickly as possible, and we don’t want to risk damage to public infrastructure. Please remember we need to keep our sidewalks clear, especially along school routes. If you have a sidewalk along the front or side of your house, you are required under city code to shovel the sidewalks so pedestrians can pass freely. NOC 8-4-1. We appreciate your willingness to help us keep the kids off the streets during the upcoming snowy season.
