Sidewalk Snow Removal

All sidewalks and shared-use paths within the City limits are to be cleared within twenty-four (24) hours of snow accumulation. Snow, ice, dirt and other debris shall not be placed in the street, gutter or sidewalk.  Once the crews have cleared the street, do not push or blow the snow from your driveway or sidewalk into the street.  This includes commercial plows.  Passing motorists drive over the fresh snow, packing it down, and forming slippery patches when the temperature drops, resulting in a driving hazard.

Refer to the City website at www.rossfordohio.com to view Rossford Municipal Code 521.06.  If such sidewalk/shared-use path is not cleared within the twenty-four (24) hour period, the City may cause such snow, ice, dirt or other debris to be removed. Upon such action, the City may charge such occupant or owner an amount equal to its costs plus 100 percent.  To report uncleared sidewalks, contact the police non-emergency number at 419-666-5230.
