The winter freeze has turned many sidewalks and roadways into skating rinks, making it difficult and dangerous to get around town. At times, I have witnessed pedestrians walking on the road to avoid the slippery walkways. All persons within the Town that own, control or occupy property that adjoins any sidewalks shall remove (or cause to be removed and cleared away) all snow, ice, dirt, debris or other materials from that part of any sidewalk adapted for the use of pedestrians.
It is important that such removal shall be completed to bare pavement or maintained in a condition that is safe for pedestrians within 72 hours of the time when the snow, ice, dirt, debris or other material was formed or deposited thereon.
The Enforcement team recommends that ice be chipped away when the weather is warm. Please do your part in keeping everyone safe. Violators could be subject to a $100 fine.
