Sidewalks must be kept clear of snow and ice to provide safe passage to pedestrians. Property owners are responsible for removing snow from sidewalks by 11:00 a.m. each day. Additional efforts should be made when snow continues to fall during the day. Safe footing can occasionally be maintained by sprinkling the sidewalk with salt, ashes, sawdust, or sand. Specific information on this topic can be found in the Snow and Ice Removal section of the City of Lodi Ordinances.
The city makes every effort to clear snow and ice away to maintain traffic flow when a snow or ice event is declared. To accomplish this, drivers should refrain from parking on streets or public alleys. Specific information on this topic can be found in the Winter Parking section of the City of Lodi Ordinances.
Private mailboxes damaged by direct physical contact with operating city equipment will be replaced at the expense of the city upon proof of damage by city equipment. Mailboxes damaged due to contact with snow or ice will not be replaced. The policy related to snow and ice removal is established by City Ordinance.
