Department of Public Works (DPW)

The City Department of Public Works (DPW) provides the following: road repair, sidewalk repair, cleaning, maintenance and snow removal of municipal roads, city parks and city-owned properties plus much more.

Please note that City Ordinance Section 19-212 requires that private property owners clear snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property. The City DPW provides sidewalk snow clearance services as an additional level of service, however, private property owners are still responsible:

No person shall permit any snow or ice to remain on the sidewalks in the front, rear or sides of any house, premises, building or lot owned, occupied or controlled by him, and shall clear all ice and snow from sidewalks adjoining such lot or premises within 24 hours after the end of snowfall. When any ice shall form on any sidewalk, that person shall immediately remove the ice. Rock salt, sand or sifted coal is to be spread upon the ice in such manner and in such quantity as to prevent the sidewalk from being slippery and dangerous to pedestrians; and that person shall remove the ice as soon thereafter as shall be possible. (Ord. No. 210, § 2.01, 8-19-1982)
