Snow – Pease Park on Even Side

It’s been snowing heavily. Please see below a few important reminders from the Public Works.
Public Works crews plow and salt City streets and parking lots to clear snow and ice. Things you can do to help include:
• Move parked cars off the street so the snow plows can clear snow to the curb.
• If off-street parking is not available during predicted snowstorms, park on the EVEN side of the road (EXCEPTION: if your address is odd-numbered and the area across from your house is undeveloped, park on the odd side of the street)
• Clear snow and ice from the sidewalks in front of your residence. THIS INCLUDES STORMDRAINS! The City is responsible for clearing the streets; residents should work together to help keep driveways and storm drains clear.
• Crews work around the clock during snow emergencies to clear the streets. Your patience is appreciated during these times. Always plan to set your refuse and recycling carts out for your regularly scheduled day during snow events. Refuse and recycling collections may occur later in the day than normal, but you should not expect collections to be delayed until thefollowing day.
Property owners, occupants and merchants are reminded of the City requirement to remove accumulated snow and ice from all walkways, driveways, parking lots and other areas used by pedestrians or automobiles. The owner or occupant of any property that abuts the sidewalk must clean public sidewalks of ice, sleet and snow for their full width. It is required that snow and ice be removed within the first eight (8) hours of daylight after snowfall stops. These requirements are listed under City Code Sections 157-6(B)(10) and 141-5(A). Though City code enforcement officers may not cite all such violations immediately after a storm, failure to comply with this regulation in a timely manner could be used as evidence by anyone injured in a fall on or adjacent to your property if you are sued for such injuries. If you slip and fall on someone else’s property, a premises liability attorney from Hensley Legal Group, P.C. can help you prove it was the property owner’s negligence. Be prepared! Keep snow shovels and salt ready for the next storm, and plan to have help available if necessary to make your walkway safe as soon as the snow stops falling
