RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) – The City of Reno is reminding property owners that it is their responsibility to remove snow and ice from the sidewalks adjacent to their property.

Also keep in mind, while it is sometimes necessary, overuse of ice melt products can deteriorate the concrete and harm the environment.  City environmental services staff recommend using a magnesium-based ice melt product over a sodium chloride mixture, because it is less harmful to concrete, metal, and nearby plants, as well as the Truckee River.  Ignoring an icy sidewalk can result in a fine.

Residents need to remove personal property such as trash cans, basketball hoops, boats and R.V.'s from the curbside during snow removal operations.

just remember that if you don't intend to shovel your walks or hire someone to do it,and a pedestrian slips and falls in front of your house they can sue you and they'll win. By not trying to keep the sidewalks shoveled off,you're automatically in the wrong and could lose everything you own. Have a nice day.

When the city decides to clear my street, then and only then will I clear my sidewalks.

A Free Snow Shovel For Everyone! (Great idea!)---Just go out and shovel the sidewalks around your home. You probably won't mind it. It gives you a good reason to go outside and enjoy our environment. get exercise in too. lol.- really, I have about 3 happy go lucky, let's get it done snowstorms in me a season. On another note, keeping recent furloughs and our current recession in mind, we should just do our part to keep the city we live in the way we want it. We shouldn't expect it to get done if we aren't willing to do it ourselves. UNLESS- you physically shouldn't or you just can't.

What I meant to say in the last sentence: It has a lot of salt in it and works just fine.

rock salt or the swimming pool conditioner does just fine. It has a lot of salt in it and it.

time to haul the short-timers outta their bunks- nobody pays attention to this stuff anyway, it is just another part of the NVada 'lifestyle'. I know 'cause my neighbor's house is where kids have to walk to school, and they don't shovel, ever. Neither do a lot of commercial property owners.

If people would just remove the snow before they drive or walk on it, it goes away easily. Unfortunately, most people are too stupid to figure that out, and then they need to use an ice melt product to break through the ice. My driveway and sidewalk have been dry since an hour after the snow stopped and the sun came out.

Yet reno does not remove the ice and snow from the streets. My family is stranded at home just off kings row due to the layer of ice that reno has failed to remove. Non of our cars can move. We just get stuck.
