The City of Klamath Falls is offering senior citizen snow removal assistance this winter. Qualifying senior citizens who are residents of the City may request assistance in removal of snow from paved driveways and sidewalks at their homes.
Seniors should apply ahead of the snow season as applications must be received, reviewed and approved before a crew will be dispatched to perform any services. Seniors wishing to apply may pick up an application at the Police Department located at 2501 Shasta Way. Applications (PDF) are accepted at any time throughout the winter.
Residence: Must be a single family residence, the principle residence for the applicant and must be located within the Klamath Falls City limits
Calls for Assistance
During the coming winter, approved applicants may call the City Code Enforcement Department at 541-883-5358 to request assistance. On a first come basis, Monday through Friday, Code Enforcement will dispatch a crew to the residence to remove the snow and/or ice as soon as possible. Code Enforcement will only respond to individual calls for assistance during the winter. Absent a call for assistance, Code Enforcement will not automatically dispatch crews.
The City has budgeted $2,000 for this program for the 2018 to 2019 winter. In the event these funds are expended in total, the program may immediately be discontinued.
The service is not available to multi-unit residences.
