WINTER REMINDERS

Snow Etiquette

Please remember to keep fire hydrants and drains clear of snow.

It is illegal to plow snow from driveways or walks into or across the street, since it can hinder snow removal by City Crews.

Nightly No Parking on City Streets

There is no parking on City Streets from
2:00 AM - 6:00 AM
November 1st to May 1st

It is a violation to park in any manner which impedes snow removal

The City of St. Louis Code of Ordinances, Sec. 54-14, states that the owner or occupant of any lot, land or premise is responsible for sidewalk snow and ice removal.  No person in removing snow or ice from any sidewalk shall cause damage to sidewalk.

For detailed information about the Public Works Department's efforts to provide safe, accessible streets during the winter months, please refer to their Snow Removal Program.

PLEASE be careful as you're driving. Not all City streets get salted, and even the intersections where is has been salted might still be slippery because of the temperature. Please try to slow down a bit, just in case! Thanks everyone.
