|SIDEWALK SNOW REMOVAL MAPS|
|SIDEWALK SNOW REMOVAL|
|Recent changes have been adopted by the Macomb City Council in regard to SNOW and ICE removal from sidewalks. As contained in Ordinance 15-35, adopted by the City Council of the City of Macomb, in an effort to maintain safe and passable pedestrian sidewalk areas in zones that have been identified as either having high pedestrian traffic or being an area where safe and passable sidewalks was of great importance, being the School Zones, there is a mandate that property owners of these parcels that abut or front on a paved sidewalk, must remove the snow and treat the ice, if necessary.
If there is a snow event, being 3 inches of snow or more, or an ice event, then the Public Works Director shall declare a snow event mandating snow removal of sidewalks in the abatement zones. The Director will issue a statement to the City Clerk who will post the information on the City's website, facebook page, and forward the statement to local radio stations and television stations. Property owners within the abatement zones will have 24 hours to remove the snow and ice following the public announcement. If the property owner does not remove the snow and ice then the City shall have the snow and ice removed and will bill the property owner for the cost of the removal.
PLEASE contact the Building and Zoning Office at the number listed below, prior to a snow or ice event if you feel you are without an ability to have the snow or ice removed and the City shall attempt to aid in suggesting alternate sources for complying with the snow and ice removal requirements.
The sidewalk is to be cleared of snow for a width of at least 48 inches or if the sidewalk is lesser than 48 inches in width then the entire width. If the snow or ice has become too hard to remove then the property owner responsible shall apply sand or other abrasive material to make pedestrian travel on the sidewalk reasonably safe. When conditions do not allow for the complete removal of ice and snow, the property owner shall remove the remaining ice and snow as soon as temperatures make removal possible.
All the information can be found in the City of Macomb's Municipal Code Sections 20-54 through 20-57. The Municipal Code is available online or in the City Clerk's office.
Please feel free to contact the Office of Building and Zoning, 309/833-4944, or the Office of the City Administrator, 309/837-0501, with any additional questions or concerns you may have. Thank you for your cooperation and support in this effort to provide safe and passable sidewalks.

|Macomb utilizes CodeRED Emergency Notification system|
|The City of Macomb has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides Macomb officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire city/county.
This system is only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database, this is an extremely important feature.
All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number.

|DISCHARGING GRASS AND DEBRIS ONTO PUBLIC STREETS|
|Discharging debris including grass clippings and leaves while mowing can cause storm drains and lines to become clogged when rain washes the debris into or on top of the storm drains. When wet, it can also potentially create a dangerous driving condition on the street. Finally, it is a violation of the Municpal Code:
Excerpt from Municpal Code:
Sec. 20-2 (a) Deposit of waste and harmful materials in public places; It shall be unlawfully to throw or deposit on any street, alley, sidewalk, gutter, or other public place any material which may be harmful to the pavements thereof, or any waste material, rubbish, grass, leaves, branches, glass, tacks, nails or other substances or articles.
Your Cooperation in following this ordinance would be much appreicated.
