Snow Tip of the Day!#

Iced over sidewalk

Iced over sidewalk due to the freeze/thaw cycle and blocked drainage

Snow will eventually melt and flow into our storm drain system. It is important to keep the melting snow flowing  to avoid the back up onto sidewalks and having it freeze creating a real hazard. You can help this flow of melting snow by keeping the storm drain, curbs and gutters clear. One tip is to park slightly away from curbs and storm drain outlets and please do not shovel snow into the street per City of Fort Collins Municipal Code Sec. 20-100.
