Residents are being reminded to keep their sidewalks clean.

In the Fort, snow, ice and debris must be removed from property connecting sidewalks.
 
"Residents are required to clean off the snow off their sidewalks in front of their homes within 48 hours of the snow taking place," said Matt Lowther, supervisor for municipal services. "The reason we ask residents to clean off the snow is strictly for safety."
 
Cost for first time offenders is $100, after that it's $200.
 
Safety for pedestrians is the main goal of the snow removal bylaw, which states that tickets can be issued if sidewalks are not cleared in the alloted time.

"Driveways and walkways to doors that are on private property are not required to be shoveled, but are recommended," added Lowther. "If for some reason people are unable to, we ask they get a neighbour to assist."
 
If rain or snow does cause icy conditions, salt and sand is allowed to be placed on sidewalks.
