Sidewalks in Winter
Across the city, keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice is the responsibility of the property owner. The City urges all property owners to complete their civic responsibility and ensure the safety of fellow residents.
By ordinance, anyone with a sidewalk parallel to any public street, shall clear and keep cleared any snow or ice which has accumulated on the surface. All city property owners are required to remove snow and ice from sidewalks on their property by 6:00 p.m. in the evening following the snow event. Residents should not shovel, sweep, throw, plow, or otherwise deposit snow or ice into the street, sidewalk, or park located within the city.
In addition, the Syracuse Fire Department requests that residents help clear snow from around the more than 5,000 fire hydrants across the city. Instead of blowing or pushing snow near hydrants, SFD asks residents to take the extra time to clear a three-foot space around all sides of hydrants and to make a path from the road to the hydrant.
The City is responsible for removing snow from the sidewalks and rights of way around City of Syracuse properties, in keeping with city ordinances.
Winter Service Requests
Residents can report snow related concerns or make service requests to Cityline.
