When do I have to shovel the snow from my sidewalk?

Borough Ordinance establishes a resident's responsibility for removal of snow and ice from sidewalks

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 thirty inches (30") in width from so much of said sidewalk as is in front of or abuts on said building or lot of land .

Except as provided below, snow and ice shall be removed from sidewalks within twelve (12) hours after the cessation of any fall of snow, sleet or freezing rain .

In the event snow and/or ice on a sidewalk has become so hard that it cannot be removed without likelihood of damage to the sidewalk, the person charged with its removal shall, within the time mentioned above, shall cause enough sand or other abrasive to be put on the sidewalk to make travel reasonably safe; and shall, as soon thereafter as weather permits, cause to be cleared a path in said sidewalk of at least thirty inches (3011) in width .

No person shall deposit or cause to be deposited any snow or ice on or immediately next to a fire hydrant or on any sidewalk, roadway, or loading and unloading areas of a public transportation system, except that snow and ice may be mounded by the Borough on public cartways incident to the cleaning thereof or mounded on curbs incident to the clearing of sidewalks in business districts.
