On Wednesday January 22, several residents had still not removed snow and ice from their sidewalks. Our local ordinance requires;
Every person in charge or control of any building or lot of land fronting or abutting on a paved sidewalk, whether as owner, tenant, occupant, lessee, or otherwise, shall remove and clear away or cause to be removed or cleared away, snow and/or ice from a path of at least 30 inches in width from so much of said sidewalk as is in front of or abuts on said building or lot of land. Snow and ice shall be removed from sidewalks within 12 hours after the cessation of any fall of snow, sleet or freezing rain.

HBPD made contact 22 people that had not made any attempt to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks. The sidewalks were promptly cleaned and no citations were issued. Repeat violators will be cited.
Please make reasonable attempts to remove snow and ice after a storm. Pedestrians count on you to make their travels safer.
