York mayor: Shovel the sidewalks, inspectors patrolling Tuesday at 8:00 AM

York, PA

York Mayor Micahel Helfrich issued the following statement regarding the snow removal requirements this morning, March 4, 2019, telling residents inspectors would begin patrolling the City of York, tomorrow morning.

Mayor Michael Helfrich would like to remind residents and property owners that the Property Maintenance Code requires that snow and ice be removed from sidewalks within twelve (12) hours of the end of the precipitation. A sufficient amount of snow and ice must be removed to leave a cleared pathway at least thirty-six (36”) inches in width for the entire length of the sidewalk in front of and abutting the property. On sidewalks less than thirty-six (36”) in width, a path must be cleared that allows one (1) pedestrian to pass at a time. Additionally, snow and ice that is removed from a sidewalk or other property may not be deposited into the roadway. Property Maintenance Inspectors will be patrolling the City to ensure that snow and ice have been removed.
