Reporting a Snow - covered Sidewalk
It's illegal in Saint Paul to leave an accumulation of snow on a sidewalk. To report a sidewalk that’s a safety hazard and needs shoveling, call 651-266 - 8989, email us, or use our online Complaint form. Be sure to tell us the address of the property, and check to be certain it’s within 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 work.
