Due to the snow that we just received we would like to inform residents on items dealing with the winter and snow fall.

- If you receive mail through a mailbox, it is the property owner’s or renter’s responsibility to clear all snow in front of your mailbox to ensure your mail is delivered. If you are planning on receiving a package, make sure your sidewalk and steps are clear of ice and snow. This will allow safe access for those delivering.
- Plowing across the street is against state law. Plowing snow across the street can leave a deposit of snow which can be hazardous to motorists which is why this is against the City Ordinances and state law.
- If you live in a home that is adjacent to a sidewalk the snow must be removed within 12 hours of a snow event by the adjacent owner. If the snow is not removed within 24 hours after a snow event, the City will remove the snow and bill each property owner $50 each time for removal. City Ordinance 93.51
- For those that have a fire hydrant on or near your property, consider helping clear them of snow. This will help provide quick access for the fire department if a fire occurs near you. For locations of fire hydrants, click here for map of hydrants within the city.
