Snow reminder for business owners:

Reminder for business owners:

*Snow and ice must be removed within four hours after snow has stopped falling or by 11 a.m. if the snow has not stopped falling after 9 p.m. the previous evening.

*Snow should not be thrown into the street.

*If snow or ice becomes frozen so hard that it cannot be removed, sidewalk can be strewn with ashes, sand, sawdust, or similar suitable material within the same time limits.

*All ground level commercial/business owners should clear snow/ice from their awnings as soon as the weather permits to prevent structural collapse. If you have a retractable awning or shade, please close these devices.

*One-story commercial property owners/lessees should clear snow/ice from their rooftops as soon as the weather permits to prevent possible collapse (a professional should perform this task).
