City/Public Works Snow/Ice Removal
The City has ownership of a number of properties within this area. Therefore, the Public Works Department is charged with the responsibility of clearing snow/ice in those areas. In doing so, the Department typically assists the other property owners by running its sidewalk plow wherever it fits in the area. However, this does not relieve the other property owners of their responsibility to clear snow/ice. Also, the City offers free sand/salt mixture at the Recycling/Transfer Station, 371 Hill Street, during the winter months. There is a limit of two 5-gallon buckets per day.
In cases where a property owner does not address his/her responsibility, fines can be imposed and the City can charge the owner for clearing the sidewalk.
