SNOW REMOVAL POLICY 2021-2022
Wednesday, November 24, 2021
As per City of Redfield Ordinance No. 12-28: “It shall be the duty of the owner or occupant or person in possession or in charge of any lot, parcel, or plot of ground fronting or abutting upon any sidewalk, to keep such sidewalk free and clear from snow and ice at all times. When it is impossible to take snow and ice from such walk by reason of it being frozen to the sidewalk, the owner or occupant or person in charge of such lot shall sprinkle or spread some suitable material upon the same to prevent the walk from becoming slippery and dangerous to travel.
If the owner, or person in possession, or in charge of any of the lots, parcels, or plots of ground fails or refuses to remove the snow or ice from such sidewalk within eighteen hours of the falling of the snow or the forming of the ice, cessation of falling or blowing snow, the City shall require the Sheriff to serve a notice requiring the removal of snow or ice or the City shall remove or cause to be removed the snow or ice each time it is necessary, and assess the cost thereof against the fronting or abutting property.”
