Winter Sidewalks and Parking

The City of Ogdensburg is reminding residents that winter is fast approaching and that with it comes winter related ordinances to sidewalks and on street parking.


Overnight, on street parking is prohibited – December 1st through March 31st.

Property owners are responsible for the clearing of their sidewalk after each snowfall.


Here are some friendly reminders:

Dos:

  1. Remove any snow that you might accidentally place in the roadway.
  2. Remove snow from your sidewalks.  It is the property owner’s responsibility to ensure that their sidewalk is passable and available to the walking public.
  3. Be courteous to where you place your snow.  Are you placing it where it could be pushed into a neighbor’s yard or driveway?
  4. As a home or business owner, you are responsible for the actions of whom you might hire for your snow removal needs.  Please ensure that they are doing the right thing.
  5. Report illegal activity to the City Police or DPW so that it can be addressed. Anonymity will be honored as permitted under law.


Don’ts:

  1. Do not push snow out into the street for City plows to manage.  It is illegal to place snow or cause for it to be placed in a roadway.  Please remove any snow that you might accidentally place in the roadway.
  2. Do not block sidewalks or crosswalks with snow.  Be courteous to the walking public.
  3. Do not push snow on to a neighbor’s property without their permission.  If you have permission, and you push across the roadway, please ensure that you clean all the snow out of the roadway.  Be courteous; do not make it someone else’s problem.
  4. Do not place your garbage containers in the roadway.  Place them in your driveway or between the sidewalk and the street.


Contractors:

If removing / hauling snow from a private or commercial property please coordinate with the City DPW as to where it can be dumped.  The City has identified several large sites that should meet our snow storage needs.  Please coordinate your usage of these sites with the City so that we can ensure that we keep them pushed up.  We are going to allow dumping into the river under emergency situations only.

Please do not dump more than three (3) loads in a row when using the storage sites.  Please do not block access roads or gates.


If in doubt to any of this information, please reach out to the City DPW for clarification.
