Property owners responsible for snow removal from sidewalks, curb cuts and corners

Property owners/occupants are responsible from removing snow from sidewalks adjacent to their property. Snow should also be cleared along adjacent wheelchair ramps, curb cuts, and corners, and is the responsibility of the property owner.

It is illegal to shovel snow back onto streets or onto fire hydrants. The City performs proactive inspections and also relies on citizen complaints to help identify those property owners that are not meeting sidewalk safety requirements. The vast majority of property owners comply with these regulations, but the City will issue fines to those who do not keep sidewalks, wheelchair ramps, and curb cuts clear.

Residents are urged to assist elderly or disabled neighbors with clearing snow from their properties.

Please clear fire hydrants and sewers

Property owners are asked to please clear snow from fire hydrants so the Hoboken Fire Department has clear access in case of an emergency. Property owners are asked to also please clear sewer drains to allow melted snow to property drain and prevent the pooling of water.

Reporting unshoveled sidewalks

To report an unplowed street, unshoveled sidewalk, or other problem, residents can submit an online complaint via https://www.hobokennj.gov/311. The 311 mobile app may not be working for some users, who should report unshoveled sidewalks via the online link above.

Street cleaning suspended remainder of the week

Street cleaning is now suspended for rest of the week and is scheduled to resume on Monday, February 8. All other parking rules and regulations, including meters remain in effect to help facilitate snow removal from business districts.
