Friendly Winter Reminders
Sidewalks: Public sidewalks provide safe routes to schools, bus stops and other important destinations. City Code requires all sidewalks to be cleared of snow and ice throughout the winter season.
Fire Hydrants: The Parchment Fire Department requests property owners to clear snow away from any fire hydrants on or adjacent to their property. Should there be a fire nearby, it is imperative that firefighters have clear access to fire hydrants so that fire hoses can be immediately attached and used to fight the fire. We know that it can be challenging to keep up with winter maintenance, however, good property stewardship is appreciated by the City of Parchment and your fellow neighbors as well. If you become aware of a neighbor who might need assistance with property maintenance this winter, lend a hand if you are able.
