Snow removal assistance needed for elderly and disabled

The City of Morgantown Code Enforcement Department is developing a list of individuals and groups that can be contacted during and following snow events to assist with snow removal from sidewalks and driveways for residents who cannot remove the snow on their own (elderly, disabled, etc.). We would prefer to assist these residents when possible rather than issue citations. But we can only achieve this with the help of the community.

Tools will be provided either by homeowners or the City of Morgantown. We can accommodate your schedule within a 24 hour period. To sign up, go to the need on iServe. You will receive text or email alerts when there is a need.

If you represent a student organization and are willing to send out a call to members of your group who might be able to help on a given day, please contact Mike Stone at Code Enforcement: mstone@morgantownwv.gov, 304-284-7401.
