Clearing Sidewalks of Snow

12/22/2008 12:01:00 AM
Quite a bit of snow we're getting in Boston. This email reminder was sent to me today regarding the removal of snow from sidewalks and who's job it is to do it. It's good to know, especially if you're a property owner or retailer:

It is the property owners / retailers responsibility to clear the sidewalk of snow.

During a storm , please continue to shovel the sidewalk and also place pellets or sand on the sidewalk. After a storm , the City of Boston ordinance states that all sidewalks needs to cleared of snow 1 hour after a storm.

Please also clear handicap ramps, and fire hydrants!
If a sidewalk is not shoveled , you can call 617-635-4500, Mayor' s Hotline. Property owners will be fined if a sidewalk is NOT shoveled.

The City of Boston is responsible to clear the streets.
