WINTER REMINDERS

  • Shovel your sidewalk. Saint Paul City Ordinance requires snow and ice to be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours. Corner property owners must shovel curbs, walkways and crosswalks to the street.
  • Do not push snow out into the streets.
  • Do not place recycling and garbage carts in the street. Carts should be kept in the boulevard or at the end of the driveway.
  • If you are able, please shovel hydrants out and clear snow and ice off storm drains to prevent street flooding.
