The code specifies that property owners must clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after the snow stops. However, we also consider the overall conditions throughout the region.
Code Compliance inspectors first visit commercial properties adjacent to mass transit and other areas with heavy pedestrian traffic before turning our attention to residential streets.
We may issue warnings before citing property owners. Repeat offenders are cited. While we recognize that snow removal is a difficult and demanding task, we do expect property owners to comply with the code and keep our sidewalks passable and safe.
