CITY OF WATERLOO SIDEWALK SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL

The owner, occupant, or person in charge of every building, lot, or part of a lot within the City abutting upon a public sidewalk shall remove all snow and ice from said public sidewalk within 24 hours from the time the snowfall ceases. When ice is formed on the sidewalk so that it cannot be removed, it shall be kept sprinkled with ashes, salt, sand or like material.

The entire sidewalk, from edge-to-edge, must be made safe for passage.

If snow or ice is not removed from sidewalks or sprinkled as required above, one warning, per property parcel, per snow season will be given for the failure to clear sidewalks.

After one warning is issued -- if the sidewalk is not made safe for passage -- the City may remove or cause to be removed all such snow and ice and the person in charge of the premise shall be charged. The charge will consist of a Public Works Department charge for time spent at the task of making the sidewalk safe for passage with a minimum charge of one-hour per visit. Repeat offenders within a snow season shall be charged an enhanced penalty

The municipal snow removal charge is $95/hour with a one-hour minimum.

 

Questions should be directed to the Department of Public Works (920) 478-9797

Thank you for keeping sidewalks safe during winter months
