Snow Removal Requirements Issued by Police Department

RSPD Chief Dwane Pacheco reminds residents of their responsibility in removing snow from their properties.

ROCK SPRINGS — As snow continues to blanket southwest Wyoming the Rock Springs Police Department would like to remind residents of some requirements concerning snow

According to Chief of Police Dwane Pacheco:

1. It is the duty of the occupant (owner if premises are not occupied) to keep
sidewalks in front of business and residence premises free from
accumulation of snow and to remove same with reasonable dispatch.
2. Snow and ice shall not be removed from private property into a public right-
of-way to the extent possible.
3. Snow and ice may be moved to clear parking slots in front of premises but
storm drains, intersections, driveway and travel ways may not be impeded.
The Rock Springs Police Department encourages all to be “good neighbors” and
attempt to assist our elderly and disabled residents in keeping sidewalks clear for
pedestrian traffic.
