The Public Service Department is responsible for providing snow and ice control for city streets and designated snow routes. 

The department's Snow and Ice Control Program outlines the level of service and expectations for winter maintenance operations. In addition, the classification of streets, designated snow routes, and prioritization of streets for snow removal is defined within the Snow and Ice Program.

Questions or concerns regarding snow removal on city streets can be directed to the Public Services Department at 319-377-6367 or email.



Please keep sidewalks clear of snow and ice. 

Per City of Marion Ordinance 141.03 “Removal of Snow, Ice and Accumulations” property owners are required maintain their sidewalks and that snow and ice shall be cleared within 12 hours after the snow or ice has been deposited on the sidewalk.

The entire sidewalk along the property must be cleared, including any corners leading into the street. If the snow/ice is not removed in a timely manner, the City will clear the sidewalk. The resulting charges will be 85 cents per square foot, plus a $25.00 administrative fee.

 If you have any questions relating to snow removal on sidewalks, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department at 319-447-3580.
