WINTER SNOW & ICE

 
 
Just a reminder that it is the responsibility of the property owner/lessee to clear sidewalks of snow and/or ice within 24 hours following a snowfall, sleet or freezing rain.
Once cleared this maintenance shall include the use of salt, melting agent or enough sand to make the sidewalk reasonably safe for pedestrian traffic.
 
In the event of a Snow Emergency (declared by City Manager and DPW Superintendent) vehicles must removed from all City streets to allow for plowing by both City and Oakland County crews.
Notification of a declared Snow Emergency will be made through local news stations, the City website www.southlyonmi.org as well as the City sign in McHattie Park.
