Clearing snow from sidewalks is the responsibility of all homeowners.
A city of Minot ordinance says after a snow event you must clear the snow within 24 hours.
If it’s not done the Minot Police department could be knocking on your door enforcing you to do it.
The police department says so far there have been no reports of of snow removal problems, but they say right now that the weather is nice is the best time to get your sidewalks cleaned up.
The city fire department also encourages residents close to fire hydrants to clean around them as well.
