Sidewalk clearing ordinance back in effect

This just in —

Starting Monday, the Department of Public Works will restore the sidewalk clearing ordinance. Inspectors will issue warnings first, followed by citations. Residents are reminded to avoid shoveling snow into the streets. The Mayor encourages young people to help their elderly neighbors in clearing sidewalks and reminds residents to stay safe.

β€œIn this weather, everything is harder to do and much more dangerous,” Ravenstahl said. β€œI urge our young people to get out there and help your elderly neighbors. Often times, our seniors are our most conscientious residents, and we must pitch in to help them clear sidewalks.”

Well, hopefully we’ll see some action on some of our pedestrian walkways.
