COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY OWNERS –
Sidewalk Snow Plowing
City ordinance requires commercial and industrial property owners to clear sidewalks within 18 hours after sleet, freezing rain or snow stops falling, with the exception of Sundays and holidays (Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day). In this case, snow must be cleared by noon the day following the Sunday or holiday. If the snow or ice is too hard to remove, the owner must spread enough sand or other abrasive material to make travel safe and as soon as weather permits, must clear a path of at least 48 inches in width.
Code enforcement officers can write a municipal civil infraction ticket to commercial and industrial property owners who do not fulfill this requirement of the ordinance.
ALL RESIDENTS – On Street Parking
With the forecasted winter storm, do NOT park on City streets, this will help our Street Department clear our streets quickly and efficiently.
From Dec. 1, 2019 to April 1, 2020, on-street parking is prohibited in non-downtown areas from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. These parking regulations will be enforced to help keep the streets clear for plowing.
ALL RESIDENTS – Sidewalk Snow Plowing
City staff will snowplow 25 miles of residential sidewalk. No salt will be used. Sidewalk snowplowing by City staff will generally not start until the City streets, alleys and parking lots have been cleared.
For a map on which sidewalks will be plowed visit: www.mt-pleasant.org/maps. For those sidewalks not currently being plowed by City staff, please keep the safety of your family and neighbors in mind and remove the snow from your sidewalk and mailbox approach as soon as practical after inclement weather.
