Let it Snow!

The City of Taylorsville strives to maintain a healthy community and has adopted ordinances to assist in maintaining the health and safety of its residents.  Adherence to the ordinances is necessary to promote a safe, healthy and neighborly community.  Here are some good reminders as we head into the winter season:

1 - Snow removal is required on private property. It is unlawful for the owner, occupant, lessor or agent of any property abutting a paved sidewalk to fail to remove all hail, snow, or sleet within 24 hours after the hail, snow or sleet has ceased falling. If the storm ends between 5 p.m. and 6 a.m., the sidewalk and any existing curb ramp needs to be cleaned before 8 a.m. the following morning. 

2 - Clogging the gutter with snow is prohibited.  It is unlawful for any person removing snow from a sidewalk, driveway or curb ramp to deposit snow, dirt or other material in a gutter so as to clog or prevent the free flow of water therein.  

3 - Do not park on the street following a snow fall. It is unlawful for any person to park any vehicle or trailer on any street after a snow accumulation of four inches or more until 24 hours after the end of such accumulation to allow snow plows to properly clear the street.  Vehicles in violation of this ordinance may be cited and/or towed at the owners expense.

4 - Please be aware of those in need during the winter months. Many Taylorsville residents do not have the physical means or ability to clear the snow from their walks, driveway and curb ramps.  Be a good neighbor and assist whenever one of these persons may need your aid or assistance.

Please contact the Code Enforcement Division of the City of Taylorsville at 801-963-5400 if there are any questions.
