City Of Laramie Policy On Snow Removal

By: oatsy40

Even though there wasn’t alot of snow for some of us in the storm that rolled through last night into this morning, it’s a good time to remind residents about city code and the requirements to shovel after a snowfall. 

Laramie Municipal Code says that following any accumulation of snow, that said snow has to be removed from the sidewalks by 12noon the following day. City code also says a path of at least 42 inches or the entire sidewalk must be cleared, whichever is less.

If a property is found to be in violation, a city employee may post a violation notice in a conspicuous place and if the snow isn’t removed in a further 24 hours, the city can have it removed by a contractor, billing the resident the contractor’s cost plus a $50 administrative fee.
