City Snow Removal Failures Continue in Minot

Following a challenging December, Minot’s streets are looking pretty good. But if you’re not fortunate enough to own a car, are a student, or someone who likes to get some fresh air through a winter walk, our City-maintained sidewalks tell a different story.

The pictures in the gallery below were taken over the past couple of weeks. They document persistent neglect of the City’s limited and vital North/South pedestrian corridors and river crossings.

City code Sec. 28-87 requires property owners to remove snow from their sidewalks within 24 hours of a snow event.

The City Snow Removal Plan calls for snow to be removed from sidewalks upon completion of snow removal on City streets.

We have reached out to the City for comment on this situation, but it was not available at the time of publication. It will be added and published independently when it is provided. We will also be reaching out to our elected officials for their comments on this situation.
