Moscow City Code — Title 5 Public Ways and Property: Sec. 9-3 Owner to Remove — It shall be the duty of every owner of any land, building, or lot within the City to remove snow and/or ice from adjacent sidewalks to permit the safe pedestrian passage upon said sidewalks bordering said property and to abate the nuisance set forth in this Chapter. This duty applies to natural snowfall; it does not extend to snow displaced onto sidewalks by City snowplows after an owner has removed natural snowfall.
Cleared snow should not be pushed into streets or other public rights of way as it can cause ice patches and blocks in those areas and can then be pushed back onto driveways and sidewalks by plow operations. Snow should be pushed or stored onto areas.
