We are short this year on volunteers to help with our “Snow Buddy” program and have a waiting list for those in need of assistance.  

Are you interested in becoming a "Snow Buddy"? Snow buddies help out those who need assistance getting their sidewalks cleared after a snow storm in Billings. Code Enforcement regularly gets calls from the elderly or people with physical challenges who need a helping hand with snow removal. Please contact us at 237-6146 to get your name added to our Snow Buddy list. As a Snow Buddy, you can let us know if you prefer referrals only in certain areas of town and the time/days you might be available. If we get a call for help in your area, we will give you the info to connect with your neighbor in need.
