April 17, 2018 – Snow Removal Update

Dear Constituent;

This is a snow storm, like the others we have had this winter, and the City should have cleaned the snow.

The City, however, did clear bicycle paths downtown. Meanwhile our residents had to walk on the street because the sidewalk had not been cleared.

People have called and emailed me with respect to placing a claim into the City for damages that they incurred due to physical injury or property damage.

Here is what you need to do if you want to file a claim for damages or personal injury which you incurred because of the storm:
