For those residents and businesses with sidewalks, please remember to clear them so pedestrians can safely walk. Also, please do not throw snow into the roadway or onto other people's property as that is prohibited. And yes, we do get calls each storm for it!!
The following is the Township Ordinance which details which prohibits such activity, as well as the requirements for the clearing of sidewalks.
8.56.060 - Clearing of sidewalk, walkways and streets.
Snow, Ice and Sleet.
The owner and tenant of any land abutting upon any sidewalk or walkway of any public street or road in this township shall remove all snow, ice and sleet from the full width of that sidewalk abutting his or her land, or the land occupied by him or her as a tenant, within twelve (12) hours of daylight after the same shall cease to fall or be formed thereon; provided, however, that in the event removal of ice or sleet is rendered impractical because of freezing weather conditions, the owner and tenant of such land may discharge his or her obligations hereunder by causing the full width of such sidewalk or walkway to be thoroughly covered with cinders, sand or salt so that such sidewalk may be safely and conveniently used by pedestrians.
No person shall place or caused to be placed any snow or ice upon the paved portion of any public street or road or sidewalk in this township or on private property without the consent of the property owner. No property owner shall plow or allow to be plowed any snow from his or her driveway, parking lot, or sidewalk onto or across a public street so that any of it remains on the public street or is deposited upon other public property or on private property not owned by him or her.
