During winter, it’s up to the residents and businesses of Hopkins to remove snow and ice from public sidewalks. Even a small snowfall (less than two") can pose a safety hazard for people trying to walk on the sidewalks.
City Code 36.175 (PDF) requires an owner and/or occupant of any property with a public sidewalk to remove snow and ice within 12 hours after a snowfall. This is necessary to ensure the safety of people using the sidewalks. This ordinance will be enforced.
