Compliance with Dallas Center's winter ordinances is required for the operation of our city snow plows and the Fire Department, and minimizes your liability for injuries and damages due to snow and ice hazards on your sidewalks.
Snow and ice removal from sidewalks is the responsibility of the property owner. You have 24 hours after the snowfall to clear your sidewalk, or the City may do so and bill the property owner.
Snow Parking Ban
It is unlawful to park, abandon, or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street, alley, or city-owned off-street parking area during any snow removal period. The ban shall continue from the beginning of the snowfall to 24 hours after the snowfall has ceased.
The Fire Department requests residents with hydrants on their property to clear the snow away for easier access in case of fire.
