Snow Removal Contractors
To remove snow from city streets, you must obtain a Seasonal Use of Streets Permit. Once obtained, you can be hired by residents to clear windrows from the street. Snow removed from streets can’t be placed back on the street, a nearby median, or on other City property (e.g., parks). It must be placed on appropriate private property or taken to one of The City’s snow storage sites (standard fees will apply).
