SHEBOYGAN — As Sheboygan County prepares for another round of snow Tuesday, city officials are reminding residents to keep the sidewalks cleared of snow.
According to the Department of Public Works, home owners or occupant(s) must clear snow and ice from the full width of sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours. This goes for unoccupied homes, buildings and lots.
When ice has formed on any sidewalk that it is difficult or impossible to remove, the owner or occupant is expected to keep the sidewalk sprinkled with salt, sand or any other chemical ice remover if they are unable to remove the ice with shovel.
If a sidewalk remains snow- or ice-covered for a day after the warning is issued, then the city will have the sidewalk cleared and bill the property owner for the cost.
Several properties on the city’s south side were still covered with snow and ice Tuesday morning.
Residents wishing to report a violation are encouraged to call DPW at (920) 459-3440 or submit a report on the city’s website.
