The city is keeping those roadways cleared off and want people to keep their sidewalks cleared as well.

Crews were out all Thursday morning sanding, scraping and moving snow to keep the city safe.

As they work to clear roads, city ordinance states that you have 24 hours after it snows to clear off your walkway.

If you don't, the city can do it for you but it'll cost $1 a foot.

"Beginning of next week we'll go out when we get done with our own bike paths and sidewalks the city owns, we will go out and start doing residential ones and we will bill for that," streets superintendent Mark Aubol said.

The city has already had several phone calls about people not clearing their walkways.
