Snow and Ice Removal from Sidewalks
It is the homeowner’s responsibility to remove snow and ice from all sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours of the end of any snow, sleet or freezing rain. Failure to do so in the specified time frame is a violation of the Town’s Municipal Code and can result in a fine to the homeowner.
Snow left on walks turns into ice and makes for hazardous walking conditions for neighbors, including school children and the elderly. Once notice of violation is given to the homeowner, any snow and ice must be removed within 24 hours. After that time, the Town may make arrangements to have it cleared at the resident’s expense.
Individuals can also reduce the potential for ice by shoveling snow into their yard after a storm rather than into streets and gutters.
More information on snow and ice removal can be found in section 10.01.020 of the Parker Municipal Code.
