With the winter weather approaching the Scottsbluff Police Department would like property owners in Scottsbluff to be aware of the following ordinances pertaining to snow removal. We did receive several complaints last year regarding snow and ice being pushed from private businesses onto the public roadway, which is a violation that could result in a citation. Also attached are the snow routes for the city of Scottsbluff. We ask for assistance in helping the street department to keep the roadways clear. Thank you!
