Snow Plowing & Removal
Most streets require four passes to be cleared curb to curb. Public Works plow snow from the middle of the street to both sides, to even up the amount of snow that is deposited on each side of the street. Downtown parking areas receive high priority only during nighttime plowing operations when the lots are empty. If plowing begins during business hours, parking lots are completed after normal business hours. The goal of the Public Works Department is to have residential streets plowed within 12 hours after the end of the snow storm and snow removal from the downtown area accomplished within three days. View the City of Stillwater Snow and Ice Control Policy for more information.
Beginning 12:01 am November 1, through midnight April 1, all vehicles parked on City streets must be parked on the side of the street that bears addresses that are odd and/or even according to the day. On odd numbered days, vehicles must be parked on the odd addressed side of the street. On even numbered days, vehicles must be parked on the even addressed side of the street. Between the hours of 7:00 pm to midnight you must move your vehicle to the side of the street where parking is allowed for the next day. If your vehicle is found to be in violation of this ordinance, you may be issued a summons and your vehicle may be towed. This ordinance is necessary to allow proper snow plowing. If your car is not moved to the correct side of the street on the appropriate day, you are in violation of this parking ordinance. Any questions regarding enforcement please contact the Stillwater Police Department (651) 351-4900. Thank you.
Sidewalk Snow Removal
Clearing of snow and ice from public sidewalks is the responsibility of the property/business owner. Snow and ice must be removed from the sidewalks within 24 hours after the end of the storm.
Residents are asked to keep snow cleared from around fire hydrants. Should you have a fire at your home this will enable firefighters to provide a quicker solution for the protection of life and property.
