10/24/2014 Residential and Commercial Snow removal 2014-2015 Changes
Residents are encouraged to note a recent change in the side walk snow removal procedures.
The Boone City ordinance requires that property owners remove snow and ice accumulations from sidewalks within 24 hours in commercial districts and 48 hours in residential districts following a snow event. Owners are also required to maintain sidewalks clear of snow and ice.
New procedures in 2014 now require the City to publish notice in the newspaper informing residents of these requirements, but no additional notice will be given prior to the City performing work for properties that fail to comply. The City will cause the work to be completed and the charges will be assessed to the property taxes as a special assessment. The penalties for failure to comply with these requirements for the 2014 -2015 winter season are fifteen dollars ($ 15) for an interior lot, twenty dollars ($20) for a corner lot for snow removal, fifty dollar ($50) civil penalty, and a five ($5) dollar administrative fee.
Property owners are encouraged to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice accumulation for the safety of the users of our sidewalks. Questions may be directed to Community Service Officer Michael J. Salati Sr. at the Boone Police Department at 515-432-3456 during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm.

3/30/2015 Spring Mowing
Residents and Property Owners of Boone: Spring is upon us which, along with the good weather, brings green grass and lots of growth. The City of Boone is required by ordinance to maintain properties that do not cut grass, weeds and volunteer trees. As part of our process, the City has advertised and received bid proposals for this grass mowing. These bids for the 2015 mowing season are $30 per lot. This coupled with the required $50 civil penalty and $ 5 administrative fee make the charges for neglected properties a minimum of $85.
Residents and property owners are encouraged to take notice of these property maintenance requirements. The City of Boone appreciates your cooperation in keeping properties in compliance with applicable ordinances to avoid these charges. If you have questions regarding these requirements, please feel free to contact the Boone Police Department, Community Service Officer at 515-432-3456. Further ordinance information is available at www.boonegov.com .
