St. Augusta Snow Removal Policy
With snow likely to be appearing before much longer, please take a moment to review the city’s snow removal policies:
Snow Removal Policy: Our goal is to have a bare track on all through roads within 24 hours after a snowfall ends. You can help speed snow removal by not parking on roads or dumping snow on the roads.
Parking on Roads: Our ordinance specifically reads – “No vehicles shall be parked or left standing unattended between the hours of one o'clock (1:00) a.m. and seven o'clock (7:00) a.m. of any day in November, December, January, February, or March of each year on any street, avenue, or thoroughfare within the corporate limits of the city.” We also strongly suggest you don’t park on the street until the road has been plowed, it makes it much easier and go more quickly if the plow trucks do not have to go around vehicles parked on the street.
Don’t Dump Snow on the Road: Please don’t shovel, push, or dump snow onto any street. State law advises that shoveling or placing snow onto public roads is illegal, and may be punished as a misdemeanor.
Sidewalks: In neighborhoods that have sidewalks, it is the property owners responsibility to be sure the sidewalks are cleared of snow.
Clear out Fire Hydrants: If you have fire hydrant on you property, please clear out an area around the hydrant to make it easily assessable to our fire fighters. You and your neighbors will be glad this is done, should you require their services.
