Snow Removal
The City of Riverdale contracts its snow removal. Residents are required by ordinance to remove cars from the streets if there has been a snow fall of 2 inches or more or if conditions are icy. Vehicles should remain off the street until the snowfall has ceased and the snow plow crews have completed plowing the streets. Snow from driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots should not be deposited on City streets. It is suggested that residents place reflectors at the curb along the front property line to assist the snow plow crews.

City Telephone Directory
A city telephone directory is available to each resident. The directory may be obtained at City Hall.
