Keeping you informed on all the closings and delays in Bismarck/Mandan



Please  move vehicles off streets to aid in snow removal operation. Keep them  off the street until the plows have cleaned your street. According to  City Ordinance a person may not move, dump or deposit by any means any  snow or ice accumulated on private property onto any public street,  alley, or public right-of-way. The fine for this violation is up to  $1,000.

 Mailbox Clearance -  It is the property owner’s responsibility to clear snow around their  mailbox. If it is a cluster box, it is the responsibility of those  residents to clear the snow from around the cluster box.

 Adopt a Hydrant -  We ask for everyone’s help to clear snow from around the hydrants by  “adopting” a hydrant in your neighborhood. This helps reduce the time it  takes for the fire department to get water on a fire by ensuring that  that we can find and access the fire hydrant when we need it most. By  helping us you could save your neighbor’s house or your own in an  emergency. The snow should be cleared 6 inches below all the caps and 3  to 4 feet around the hydrant. This gives firefighters the space they  need to attach hoses and turn on water in case of a fire in your  neighborhood. If you are a business owner, please take to time to ensure  the hydrants in your area are kept clear also.

 Dumpsters -  It is the property owner’s responsibility to clear snow around  dumpsters.  In order to ensure that the waste is emptied during the  winter months the snow must be removed in front and around the  container.  The container must be moved a minimum of 7 feet from where  it is setting in order to be emptied.  The waste collection crew must be  able to maneuver the container in order to hook it up to the truck.


Garbage and Recycling Collection will resume on Wednesday. Regular garbage collection will not run on Tuesday and will be a day late for the remainder of the week.
