Snow Removal from Sidewalks: The Sidewalk Ordinance regarding snow and ice removal requires the owner, occupant or person having the care, maintenance or rental of the land, building or premises adjoining or fronting upon a sidewalk to remove snow, sleet or ice within 24 hours following the cessation of the fall of snow or sleet.
