After two back-to-back major snow events, the City of Morris will only have to send bills to about 28 property owners for doing their snow removal, out of about 1600 properties. Morris City Manager Blaine Hill explained on KMRS that snowfall is a public safety hazard, and so the city will hire someone to remove snow from sidewalks if property owners don’t within two days following the snowfall.
Then the owners need to be identified, billed and the money needs to be collected. Owners will get a $25 fine the first time the City has to remove your snow, on top of snow removal and administrative fees. Costs increase for each subsequent removal.
