Who clears sidewalks?
As a reminder property owners should keep sidewalks clear of ice, snow, leaves and debris that could cause someone to fall. In accordance to city code 7.375, owners of land abutting a sidewalk shall maintain the sidewalk and driveway approach in good repair and safe condition. Also, owners can be held liable for injuries and damages causes by unsafe conditions from sidewalks and driveway approaches abutting their property.

In the event of a winter storm emergency information is available for viewing at the Public Works homepage or by calling Public Works at 541-682-4800.
