Seasonal reminders from the City of Mt. Pleasant

With the arrival of winter, the City of Mt. Pleasant is reminding community members of the following:

Clear sidewalks following winter weather:

  • FOR ALL PROPERTY OWNERS – For the safety of your family and neighbors, please clear your sidewalk of snow, including your mailbox approach, within 24 hours after inclement weather.
  • FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS – Commercial property owners are required to clear sidewalks in business districts within 18 hours after snow, sleet or freezing rain fall, 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 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 property owners who do not fulfill this requirement of the ordinance. For further information, contact Asst. Fire Chief Michael Dunham at 779-5123 or mdunham@mt-pleasant.org.

Overnight parking:

  • From Dec. 1, 2017 to April 1, 2018, on-street and City lot parking is prohibited in non-downtown areas from 2 to 5 a.m. On-street parking is prohibited downtown from 4 to 6 a.m. throughout the year. Those found in violation are subject to a fine.
  • For those with overnight parking permits, several City parking lots have designated areas where overnight parking is allowed. For more information about parking permits, please contact the Division of Community Services at (989) 779-5347.
