City Reminds Citizens To Clear Sidewalks

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky.-- With more than four inches of snow falling overnight, officials remind citizens that Lexington property owners are required by ordinance to clear sidewalks along their property once their streets have been plowed by a city truck.  Residents have 24 hours after the end of a “snow event” to clear their sidewalks before they will be considered in violation. 

The city will not actively seek out violations. The city will respond to complaints filed through LexCall. 

Waste collection cancelled for Monday

Waste collection is cancelled today. Residents with Monday collection will be serviced on Wednesday this week instead. If your carts are full and you want to set them out, please leave them at the end of your drive. Make sure the area in front of them is clear. Do not set your carts in the street, or they will impede plowing.

Emergency weather plan for homeless

The Office of Homelessness Prevention and Intervention Emergency Winter Weather Plan remains in effect through Friday, March 16. Anyone wishing to report someone who may need a ride to shelter can call or text the Catholic Action Center’s Compassionate Caravan at (859) 913-0038. You may also contact the Hope Center Street Outreach team for referrals at (859) 699-1701. Messages are received and followed up on, but not always returned.

The city’s snow removal plan with street and sidewalk rankings is available at lexingtonky.gov/snow. Get the latest on city snow removal, closings and more at lexingtonky.gov/snowupdates.
