The snow and ice has shown up much earlier this year and this is a reminder that all owners, occupants or persons in charge of any property that is next to a sidewalk has 24 hours from the time the precipitation ceases to clear the sidewalks. The first time offense will be a letter/reminder to review this ordinance. The second time will be a fine of $98.80 with the third and all subsequent offenses wil be $161.80. An offense is considered to be each 24 hour period that the sidewalks are not cleared. Here is the complete ordinance or if you have any questions, please contact the clerk’s office.
