Private Property Snow Clearing and Removal
Private Property Snow
City ordinance prohibits snow that originates on private property from being placed within the city right-of-way at any time. No owner, occupant, or person in charge of any land or building shall permit any person to deposit or clean snow or ice onto any part of any street, sidewalk or alley. The city may immediately issue a citation and/or have the snow removed at the expense of the person who caused the snow to be placed within the city right-of-way.
All property owners in the city of Superior are required to clear snow from the city sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours of the end of a snowfall. This includes properties in areas with “Hollywood Sidewalks” or sidewalks without grass boulevards. In these areas, property owners are not required to clear the entire width of the sidewalk, but they are required to clear a pedestrian path – typically this path is created on the property side of the sidewalk next to the ridge left by the city plows. Sidewalk snow removal flier.
The goal is to eliminate the potential public safety hazard and return the city street, sidewalk, or alley to a safe and passable condition as quickly as possible. Therefore, individual warning notices may not be given prior to the city abating (removing) a snow ordinance violation and costs incurred will be charged to the responsible property owner.
