Sidewalk snow removal

For pedestrian safety, the City of Davenport would like to remind residents that snow or ice must be cleared within 10 hours following a snowfall. This is especially important for households located near schools where young pedestrian traffic is much higher.

When a sidewalk has not been cleared within the allotted time, the city may clear the sidewalk and bill the property owner without advance notice. If snow or ice has become packed and difficult to remove, it must be covered with salt, sand, sawdust, ashes or some other non-slippery or adhesive substance to make the sidewalk safe to use.

For more information please call our Community Services Division at 563-326-6198.
