This is a reminder to all citizens within the corporate limits regarding removal of snow and ice. The Town has a number of elderly and young residents and tourists who may be open to injury if the snow removal policy is not followed. It should be noted that the Town Ordinance Section 11-407 “Prohibited accumulation of snow, ice and debris on sidewalks and removal thereof by Town at expense of property owners” will be actively enforced for the benefit of all.
Section 11-407 Prohibited accumulations of snow, ice and debris on sidewalks and removal thereof by town at expense of property owners
(a) “No person shall permit the accumulation of snow or ice upon the sidewalk adjacent to any property owned or occupied by him within the town, but shall remove the same within a reasonable time not later than 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day that snow or ice accumulates thereon.
(b) No person shall permit the accumulation of trash, debris or anything unsanitary upon the sidewalk adjacent to any property owned or occupied by him within the town, or within five feet of any such sidewalk.
(c) Upon the accumulation of any snow, ice or debris upon any sidewalk or within five feet of any sidewalk in violation of this section the town, if the owner or occupant of the adjacent property fails to do so upon notice, may remove such snow, ice or debris and the expense of such removal shall be charged to the owner of such adjacent property and shall constitute a lien upon such property.”
