Sidewalk Plowing
A new sidewalk plow removes snow for pedestrians on Main StreetYour Responsibilities
Just as a reminder to residents and businesses in Lewiston, City Ordinances prohibit placing snow on sidewalks cleared by the City. The City Code of Ordinances covers this in Section 66-12.

The City's Responsibilities
Several years ago. the City Council authorized the Public Works Department to clear snow from specific sidewalks. Because of limited personnel and equipment the council has not authorized clearing snow/ice from all or even more sidewalks. Citizens have discussed adding sidewalks to the list originally approved by the Council, however, the funding for the additional cost of labor, equipment, equipment maintenance and consumables was not available to add these services.

The sidewalk plowing is performed when both personnel and equipment are available. This does not relieve the property owner or tenant from his/her responsibility under the city code.
