City of Davison - Snow and Ice Removal
The City of Davison's Department of Public Works is responsible for maintaining 5.94 miles of major streets, 12.89 miles of local streets, and 1.52 miles of state highway. Maintenance consists of snow removal, road and curb repairs, leaf pickup and street sweeping within the city limits.
Now that winter is approaching fast, the City of Davison would like to remind all property owners and/or occupants of their responsibility in keeping the sidewalks clear of snow and ice during the winter season. It is important to understand that many of our residents, including students and elderly, use these sidewalks as their way to get around.
There is a City Ordinance (Section 1024.10) which requires that all snow and ice must be removed from public sidewalks adjacent to your property within a reasonable time (Usually 48 hours) after a snowfall or the formation of ice occurs.
If you have any questions, please contact City Hall at 810-653-2191.
1024.10 Snow & Ice on Streets & Sidewalks
(a) All owners or occupants of property adjacent to a public sidewalk shall clear said sidewalk of snow and ice within a reasonable time (considering factors such as, but not limited to, weather, accumulation, and time of day) as determined by the city manager or his/her designee. Failure to clear a public sidewalk of accumulated snow or ice within such time shall cause the city to clear the sidewalk, the cost of which, in addition to a fifty dollar administrative fee, shall be placed as a lien upon such premises.
(b) No person shall, by any act or omission, allow water or any liquid capable of freezing to drain onto any public sidewalk, street, alley or parking area during the months of November, December, January, February, and March.
(c) No person shall pile, dump or place snow, ice or any other material on any sidewalk or public street in the city. Snow or ice shall not be plowed or moved across a public street or otherwise disposed of in any other place or manner so as to create a safety hazard to the people of the city.
