Snow Shoveling Rules

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

As a reminder, it's illegal for you to shovel your snow into the street in Billings. It creates more problems.

If you do see someone doing that, you can report them to code enforcement.

Also, you have 24 hours after the snow ends to clear your sidewalks or you could be fined.

The rule is so that school children can walk on the sidewalks and not on the streets.

The city has had over 75 complaints this winter about people pushing snow onto streets, and over 275 complaints about un-shoveled sidewalks.

Once a complaint is made you have 5 to 10 days to clear off your property before you're cited with a $110 ticket.

If you want to file a complaint, you can online at the City of Billings website or call 247-8647.
