With the winter season approaching the City of Wayne wants to remind property owners of their snow removal responsibility. It is illegal for any property owner to leave snow or ice accumulated on any sidewalks within the municipality. If the City receives enough snow to cause the Public Works Department to plow the streets, your sidewalks need to be cleared of snow and ice as well.
Ordinance 91.026 requires all snow and ice to be removed from sidewalks in the City within 24 hours of the Public Works Department clearing the streets. If a sidewalk is not cleared of snow and ice, the ordinance gives the City authority to have the snow and ice removed at the property owner's expense of $75 per hour.
