Citizen Snow Removal Responsibilities

Snow removal is a shared responsibility - you and UsSnow and ice on sidewalks create a dangerous situation — for all ages, but especially for children, the elderly, and persons with disabilities who are more susceptible to injury.  When sidewalks are not cleared of snow and ice, pedestrians will often avoid walking on the snow and ice-covered sidewalks and instead walk into the street, creating a safety concern. When sidewalks are not a safe place to walk, the public safety concern is amplified – especially when children are walking to or from school or walking to and from the bus and walking in the street because sidewalks are not passable.  Property owners in Douglas County are required to remove snow and ice from sidewalks per Ordinance O-007-003
