Following a snow or ice event in the City of Lodi, the full width of the sidewalk in front of or adjoining homes, buildings, or unoccupied lots (including the portion of sidewalk bordering the crosswalk and the curb ramp) is to be cleared of snow accumulation or ice by 11:00 AM of each day by the owner or occupant of the property.
In the case where snow continues to fall after 11:00 AM, then snow and ice is to be removed within three hours of daylight the day after it ceases to fall. Regardless of the source of snow or ice, the width of the sidewalk is to be kept clear. Any ice accumulation is to be sprinkled with sand or salt to prevent the ice from becoming dangerous until a time when it can be removed. Ice must be promptly removed once possible.
The snow and ice must be cleared regardless of the source. Snow and ice should not be pushed, plowed, blown, scooped, piled, or in any way deposited onto any public street, alley, sidewalk, or public lands which are used for vehicle or pedestrian traffic.
Snow and ice not removed by the owner, occupant, or the person in charge of the building or property abutting the sidewalk will be removed by the City and billed to the property owner.
