Shoveling Law

By Jacquie Bokow

Some residents may yet be unaware that a bill passed in April 2001 requires property owners to clear away ice and snow from public walkways and parking spaces bordering their property.  The law, designed for the safety of pedestrians, requires that residents clear these areas within 24 hours after the storm stops or face a fine.  A first violation calls for a written warning, followed by a $50 fine if they do not comply.

We’ve had more than our usual amount of snow this winter.  Neighbors, let’s help those in our community unable to shovel their walks themselves.   ■
