Who is responsible for clearing snow off of sidewalks?

It is the property owner's and/or occupant's responsibility to clear snow and ice from sidewalks that border their property within 12 hours after snow has fallen. Any accumulation of snow six inches or greater in depth constitutes evidence of a violation. Failure to comply with removal constitutes a public nuisance. Pushing, plowing or shoveling snow into a roadway is prohibited. View a copy of the Code of Ordinances on Sidewalk snow removal. Snow and ice complaints may be reported to 309.524.2350. Questions or concerns about the City's snow removal policy? Contact our Neighborhood Improvement Officer at 309.524.2014. The City encourages everyone to clear their sidewalks and help others who can't. Help make Moline sidewalks safe for all pedestrians this winter season.
