Snow must be removed from city sidewalks
With winter's arrival, Alexandria city officials are reminding property owners and businesses about the city's sidewalk snow and ice removal policy.
The owner or tenant of private property abutting a public sidewalk is responsible
for removing all snow and ice within 24 hours after the snow or ice event has ended.
(Separate rules apply in the downtown area.)
If a public sidewalk is not cleared within that time, public works crews may remove the remaining snow and ice and charge those costs back to the abutting private property.
If there are public sidewalks in your neighborhood that have not been cleared, contact the Public Works Department at 320-759-3631 to let them know.
