It’s that most wonderful time of the year when the weather is cold and fresh snow changes the scenery in Berkley.
Berkley is very fortunate to have walkable communities. Residents, especially children and seniors, can walk to school and City parks. Home owners show pride and respect for neighbors and the community when they shovel the sidewalks abutting private property.
For the safety of Berkley residents and visitors, business owners receive a letter every fall reminding them that they must provide for snow removal as defined in Section 106-222 of the Berkley City Code. In addition, Section 106-221 requires Oxford Park Towers and all business property to be cleared of snow. If snow is not removed in the manner defined in the ordinance, the City can clear the sidewalks and bill property owners for the work. Business owners should contact the Department of Public Works at 248.658.3320 if there are questions or concerns regarding this process.
Limited funding and assistance is available from the City to help eligible seniors with chores around the house like shoveling snow. Low to moderate income seniors may qualify for this program. For details, contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 248.658.3470.
