Be a Good Neighbor, Shovel Your Sidewalk

The County Council’s new sidewalk bill does not change the requirement that County property owners, by law, must clear sidewalks in front of and alongside their properties within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm. Help schoolkids, older adults, those dependent on transit and you and your family by providing a safe passage.
