Snow & Ice Removal
CITY OF FAYETTE
The City of Fayette would like to remind you of the Fayette City Code regarding snow removal:
135.12 DUMPING OF SNOW. It is unlawful for any person to throw, push, or place or cause to be thrown, pushed or placed, any ice or snow from private property, sidewalks, or driveways onto the traveled way of a street or alley so as to obstruct gutters, or impede the passage of vehicles upon the street or alley or to create a hazardous condition therein; except where, in the cleaning of large commercial drives in the business district it is absolutely necessary to move the snow onto the street or alley temporarily, such accumulation shall be removed promptly by the property owner or agent. Arrangements for the prompt removal of such accumulations shall be made prior to moving the snow.
136.03 REMOVAL OF SNOW, ICE AND ACCUMULATIONS. It is the responsibility of the abutting property owners to remove snow, ice and accumulations promptly from sidewalks. If a property owner does not remove snow, ice or accumulations within twenty-four (24) hours after it snows, the City may do so and assess the costs against the property owner for collection in the same manner as a property tax.
The City of Fayette Public Works employees would like to request that all vehicles parallel park on Main Street when there is snow until all the snow has been removed. A full copy of the Fayette City Code is available for viewing at Fayette City Hall or at www.fayetteiowa.com.
