RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & 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.
