[ARCHIVED] Snow and Ice to be removed from Sidewalks


After a rather unique storm in the past 48 hours, the Building Inspection Department has noticed and received a large amount of sidewalk complaints throughout the city that were not cleared of ice and snow by the 6:00 P.M. deadline. Initially, our goal is to inform and educate the general population and to keep residents safe, but ultimately citations of $187.00 per day may be issued for violations. With the weather warming up this weekend, we are asking that your sidewalks be cleared or properly treated to eliminate slip and fall complaints that we have received. Our inspectors will be out Monday Feb. 27th inspecting properties and residents will be cited accordingly. Perhaps your neighbor is ill or elderly and may not have the means to be in compliance, so we ask that if you have knowledge of that, offer to help out and keep your neighborhood safe. We appreciate your cooperation in this safety related matter. Be kind to one another.
