Plymouth Reminds Residents to Keep Sidewalks Clear
When snow falls, city reminds residents to clean driveways and sidewalks.
While temperatures this winter have remained relatively mild, snow could be just around the corner.
The City of Plymouth clerk's office is reminding residents this winter to keep sidewalks and driveways clear.
A memo from the city follows:
This will serve as a reminder of your responsibility to keep all sidewalks and driveways clear of snow and ice throughout the coming season. Snow-covered walkways are not just a nuisance; even a minimal snowfall is hazardous and creates serious public safety issues. As a property owner and/or tenant your neglect exposes you to potentially dangerous and costly liability concerns.
Property Maintenance Code Section 62-89 requires every property owner and/or occupant to remove or have removed any snow and ice which may have fallen or accumulated within 24 hours of the occurrence. In the case of neglect or refusal, the city may order the removal of same at the expense of the property owner, for not less than $125.00.
