A gentle reminder to please shovel your sidewalk

A reminder from a reader to take care of your sidewalks today/Saturday:

Removal of Rubbish, Debris and Snow from Sidewalks

If you own property bordering on a public sidewalk, it is your responsibility to keep the sidewalk free of rubbish, debris, litter and snow.

Snow must be removed within six hours after a snowfall ends. If snow stops falling during the night, snow must be removed from the sidewalk before 11 a.m. the following morning.

Contact the Department of Public Works, 311. Violation of the snow removal ordinance is a Class 4 misdemeanor. Violation of the debris ordinance is a Class I misdemeanor.

Also a good neighbor does not park in their neighbor’s snow cleared parking space.

I’m going add that that if you’ve got the opportunity, go the extra step and clear the sidewalk for an elderly neighbor (even if they’re crotchety).
