BPW Reminds Residents to Keep Sidewalks Clear

The BPW would like to remind residents it is the responsibility of the homeowner/property owner to clear sidewalks of snow and ice for the safety of pedestrians. From the Town code (Chapter 169 section 13):

"The tenant, occupant, owner or agent of any building or lot of land bordering on any street, lane, square or public place shall not allow or permit any accumulation of snow or ice to remain on the sidewalk adjacent to said building or lot of land after being ordered to remove same by the Police Department. Upon failure to comply with the order, within six hours after notification, by the tenant, occupant, owner or agent above specified, it is hereby ordered that said snow or ice shall be removed by the Board of Public Works, and costs of removal shall be assessed to the owner of the building or lot of land so involved."
