Winter is here. Having vehicles off the street during snow storms makes it easier to plow and helps drainage when melting occurs. We are asking residents to please place garbage and recycling carts on the terrace if possible.
When the City removes snow in the downtown area, the permanent signs read: No Parking from 10 pm-6 am for snow removal. The City personnel place four signs on each corner of Central Park on the days the City will be cleaning.
The City of Washington would like to remind residents that they are responsible for keeping their sidewalks free from snow and ice. The property owner and/or occupant of any building shall clear the public sidewalk of all snow and ice accumulations within 24 hours after the snow has ceased or ice formed. If the property owners and/or occupant fail to remove the ice and snow, the City may do so and the cost of the removal will be levied against the property per Ordinance 53.01.
