A snow event is called when at least 2 inches of snow has accumulated in a single snowfall. Snow events are posted on the city’s website and local access cable television. During a snow event, residents have 48 hours to remove snow from the public sidewalk abutting their property. If snow is not removed in a timely fashion, the city reserves the right to have a contractor remove the snow and charge the homeowner for the service and administrative fee.
