Snow Removal from Sidewalks
Property owners and renters are reminded of their responsibility to remove snow and ice from sidewalks. Many members of our community highly value the ability to walk their neighborhoods and business areas. Ignoring snow removal poses safety hazards, especially when conditions lead to a layer of ice. If you are unable to clear snow and ice from your property because you are out of town or have physical limitations, you are responsible for finding someone who can provide this service for you. It is unlawful for any person to deposit any snow or ice, or cause any snow or ice to be deposited, on or against any fire hydrant or traffic signal, controlled device or appurtenance. Please also remember that if you shovel snow from your property into the street, a high likelihood exists that a snow plow will return that snow to your property. It is best to pile the snow in your parkway or yard. The section of the Salida Municipal Code governing this requirement is provided below for reference. Sec. 11-2-10. - Removal of snow and ice. A copy of the Municipal Code is available online by visiting: https://www.municode.com/library/co/salida/codes/code_of_ordinances For more information, please contact Public Work at 719-539-6257.
