Who is responsible for clearing sidewalks of snow and/or ice?
According to the Town Code 191-1 (Keeping Sidewalks Clear), "every owner, lessee, tenant, occupant or anyone in charge of any property within the Town shall remove snow, ice, dirt or any other object or material from any improved sidewalk between the property line and the curb line within four (4) hours after snow has ceased to fall or after the deposit of any dirt, object or other material placed upon a sidewalk, unless it falls between the hours of 9:00 pm and 7:00 am".

In the event that the snow or ice on the sidewalk is frozen and can't be removed, the person in charge of that property shall place either ashes, sand, sawdust or similar-like material on the frozen sidewalk. Furthermore, as soon as the weather permits, the owner should thoroughly clean the sidewalk of that additional debris.

The person responsible for the sidewalk is also liable for any personal injury and property damage as a result of the failure to remove any snow, ice, dirt or any object from the sidewalk.
