  • Here are a few winter reminders from the City of Osage

    *Streets & Parking Lots: Whenever snowfall on the residential streets or public parking lots has accumulated to 1 inch or more by 7:30 a.m. on any day, it is unlawful for any person to park, abandon or leave unoccupied or unattended any vehicle on the residential streets or public parking lots until such streets have been completely plowed from curb to curb and public parking lots completely cleared. Failure to do so will result in ticketing of vehicle.

    *Sidewalks: Any property owner who fails to clear their sidewalks within 48 hours following the end of a snow, ice, and/or wind event will be charged for the city’s cost of removing the snow and/or ice plus a $25 administrative fee.

    *Reminder When Moving Snow: It is unlawful to throw, push, or place any snow from private sidewalks and driveways into the street or alley. Snow cannot be piled more than 3 feet high within 20 feet of any corner or intersection. Also, please remove snow from around any fire hydrant.

    *Snow Safety Reminder: Please remind your children of the dangers of building snow forts and playing in the piles of snow along the streets, in the boulevard areas and in public parking lots. As we get more snow, the City will be continually clearing streets and pushing piles of snow back from the street area. City equipment operators and truck drivers often cannot see what is on the other side of snow piles.
