“Sidewalk snow removal is an example of what we can accomplish as a city,” said Mayor Ben Walsh. “We’re making neighborhoods more walkable every winter. And the more we expand the program, the safer our city becomes for both pedestrians and drivers.”
Mayor Walsh does remind locals that sidewalk snow removal is still the responsibility of property owners and that the program is only supplemental.
Mayor Walsh also insists that residents still clear their sidewalks of snow and ice in case City Contractors are not able to plow their routes by 6 p.m.
According to the City ordinance, residents should not shovel, sweep, throw, plow, or otherwise deposit snow or ice into a street, sidewalk, or City park.
