Answerland: Is icicle removal required in Eagle County?

Chris Outcalt
Eagle County, CO Colorado

Q: I would like to know what codes, if any, Eagle County has for the removal of icicles from buildings for the safety of the public. I know my apartment complex has icicles that are nearly two stories long that the property management company has been dragging its feet on removing. But if there are any codes or rules or regulations regarding their removal, I would love to use them to improve the safety of my home.

A: The county has nothing on the books that requires the removal of icicles.
