U Have 24 Hours!
Our city of Shelby ordinance states" It shall be the duty of the owner of ANY premises within the limits of the municipality to keep the sidewalk of & abutting his premises clear of more than 1 inch of snow, ANY amount of snow pack, ANY amount of ice, ANY amount of slush, ANY amount of mud & all other threats to safe foot travel & to prevent the accumulation of same." Property owners shall have TWENTY FOUR hours after snow pack, ice, slush, mud, or other threats. I might also mention that a property owner shall have TWENTY FOUR hours AFTER a snow storm ends to clear the sidewalk of snow greater in depth than 1 inch. There's also a 9-4-2 for FAILURE to comply while 9-4-3 states NO notice is required.I'll be addressing the 9-4-2 & 9-4-3 in a future Puffman Blog. Stay tuned. My advice is to govern yourselves accordingly & help make Shelby safe for all of us!
