Clearing your sidewalks from the snow

The city of Rochester has an ordinance in place for removing the snow from your sidewalk.

Posted: Nov 7, 2019 5:51 PM

ROCHESTER, Minn.- The Rochester city ordinance has some requirements in place when it comes to clearing snow.

Property owners with a public sidewalk must fully remove snow and ice within 24-hours after a snowfall. The full sidewalk width must be free of snow and ice and pathways must have a clear path that is at least 5 feet wide. 

Residents are encouraged to sweep up any salt and sand left on bare pavement to save it for future re-use and to prevent it from running off into nearby waterways.
