 Snow Removal Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version  
Winter has come and made a big statement with recent storms. The City's Pubic Works crew responds and begins snow removal operations when the snow depth is more than 4 inches. They often start as early as 1:30 AM with priority on Main Street between 2:00 AM and 8:00 AM, thus, the No Overnight Parking. From there, the crew moves on to the other streets and avenues, priority beginning with high traffic areas such as around the school when school is in session. Alleys and other public facilities also are cleared such as the Hot Springs Pool parking lot. The City has a Snow Removal policy that was adopted in 2009 and can be found at Snow Removal Policy .

Please assist in maintaining a safe environment for both citizens and visitors during this winter season. Section 13-6-B of the City Code states: The owner, tenant or party actually in possession of property abutting any City sidewalk shall be jointly and severally responsible to maintain, . . . They shall also be jointly and severally responsible to remove all accumulations of snow and ice from and to correct any other dangerous conditions upon or with respect to City sidewalks abutting their property. This is common language in most municipal codes as the sidewalks belong to all citizens and all citizens are asked to assist in clearing snow and ice. Please help us keep those sidewalks clear!
