REMOVAL & WINTER INFORMATION
state statute prohibits plowing snow across any public
street. Furthermore, plowing of snow onto city
streets, alleys and/or parking lots is not allowed;
however, city ordinance does allow a person to remove
snow or ice from a driveway on property owned, occupied
or controlled by the person and pile the same in a
public street along, parallel with and as part of
a bank of snow formed by the City in its snow plowing
operations. This snow may be placed in the right-of-way
between the curb and the sidewalk on your side of
the street, adjacent to your property. Please
try to blend the snow into the existing snow banks
and do not place the snow in the street. Do
not pile snow within 25 feet of an intersection or
