The City does not have the resources to ensure that all fire hydrants in the City will be dug out. Residents are encouraged to adopt a hydrant to dig out in the winter, even if the hydrant is not necessarily right next to their house.
The placement of snow on private property from another private property is a civil matter. We encourage you to talk with your neighbor about the issue as they may not be aware that they are doing it.
State Statute 169.42 and City Code Section 24-24 prohibit snow from being pushed onto or across the street. It is important to note the City Code also holds the property owner responsible for allowing snow to be pushed from their property across a street.
