Leggett Announces Campaign to Urge Residents and Businesses to Clear Their Sidewalks of Ice and Snow After Storms

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett announced an initiative designed to remind all property owners in the County that they are required by law to clear their sidewalks within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm. Residents and businesses are urged to clear walks, not just because it’s the law but to do it for schoolkids, older adults, people who depend on transit and for themselves and their families.
The campaign also asks residents to check up on older adults and vulnerable neighbors, especially those who live alone.

Everyone is encouraged to sign up for Alert Montgomery to receive updates on County services and facilities during storms or emergencies. Messages are sent directly to subscribers’ computers and/or mobile devices. Read more.
