Worcester Residents Reminded to Clear & Treat Sidewalks

Monday, January 21, 2019

 

Worcester residents reminded to clear & treat sidewalks

City of Worcester residents and business owners are reminded to clear and treat sidewalks in front of their property within ten hours after any winter storm.

This is in accordance with the City’s Sidewalk Snow Removal Ordinance.

“Many Worcester Public School students walk to school or a bus stop. Failure to clear sidewalks results in a very dangerous scenario in which students are forced to walk in the street or risk injury walking on a slippery surface. Please take the time to clear sidewalks abutting your property and help keep our children and community at large safe,” said the City of Worcester in their press release.

The Ordinance

Under the ordinance, owners and occupants of any residential or business property are required to clear and treat sidewalks adjacent to any public or private way within 10 hours after any winter storm.

Snow and ice must be removed to a width of not less than four feet for the entire distance of the sidewalks. Sidewalks that abut crosswalks must be cleared up to the entrance of a crosswalk and around electronic signals.

Residents who don’t comply with this ordinance are subject to a $75 fine.
