Snow Shoveling Information
Snow Shoveling Compliance
It's illegal in Saint Paul to leave snow accumulation on a sidewalk. Saint Paul City Ordinance requires snow and ice to be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours. Read Chapter 113
and Chapter 114
of the Saint Paul Legislative Code. To report a sidewalk that’s a safety hazard and needs shoveling, contact the Department of Safety & Inspections
. Be sure to tell us the address of the property and check to be certain it’s within Saint Paul city limits.
The City will contact the property owner to make sure that the sidewalk gets shoveled as soon as possible. In extreme cases, the City may send a crew to clear the sidewalk, and bill the property owner for the (high-priced) work.
