The City of Pine Island would like to remind our residents and visitors that as we inch closer to the winter season, we must be mindful that with it, comes seasonal precipitation as well. We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with information regarding the Pine Island Snow Ordinance. This information should prove useful to insure that efficient and effective snow removal operations keep our city streets and sidewalks safe a navigable during snow or ice events.
