DPW outlines sidewalk snow-removal procedures

FORT CARSON, Colo. — Fort Carson requires that occupants of military or civilian government facilities be responsible for clearing snow and ice on sidewalks leading from their doorstep to the first mainline sidewalk along parking lots or roadways; this includes steps and ramps. This is known as the 50-foot rule where units and organizations have responsibility for snow and ice clearing around their buildings.

Government facility occupants can get ice melt free of charge from the Directorate of Public Works operations and maintenance contractor supply warehouse located in building 214 off of Wickersham Boulevard.

On-post Family housing members can get information about snow and ice removal by referring to their resident guide or contacting the Balfour Beatty Communities leasing specialist.
