Kenmare Residents: Please take a look at the Kenmare Emergency Snow Removal Routes. These routes are our priority when a major snow event occurs. All other streets will be cleared after the emergency routes, followed by alleys.
Please note that the City is not responsible for snow removal on sidewalks. If after 48 hours any owner of any lot refuses of neglects snow and ice removal on sidewalk the city under the director of the Street Superintendent may remove the snow and ice and have the necessary expenses assessed to the property.
