• Application for Snow Removal Volunteer

    The Pilot Snow Removal Assistance Program Winter 2018/2019

    The City of Duluth is offering a pilot project intended to assist seniors and people with disabilities with sidewalk snow removal.  To be eligible, an individual must reside in Duluth, be over the age of 60 and/or have a disability.  This program is for people who are not physically able to remove snow and do not have other resources to remove snow, such as neighbors, friends or a hired service.

    This program has limited capacity and will operate on a first come, first served basis.  City staff will match those requesting snow removal services with local volunteers. Snow removal needs to occur within 24 hours after two or more inches of snow has fallen and the snow has stopped. The Snow Removal Assistance Program provides for removal of snow from the door of the eligible residence to the sidewalk (including steps) and from the public sidewalk along the property (including curb ramps and curb cuts). Volunteers cannot clear snow from cars, driveways, multiple entryways, roofs, etc.

    People receiving snow removal services should not invite volunteers into their homes and volunteers should not enter residents homes.  Volunteers are not allowed to solicit or accept money, tips or gifts.

In order to volunteer to provide snow removal services, you must answer yes to the following questions
