[ARCHIVED] Ordinance on Removal of Snow and Ice

As a reminder, residents cannot shovel snow from their personal property into the street. The ordinance that addresses this concern is included below:

15-6.5 Removal of Snow and Ice.*

 The owner or occupant of land abutting upon any street in the Township shall remove all snow or ice from the sidewalks, public pathways and gutters in front of his/her premises within eight (8) hours of daylight after the same has formed or fallen thereon.

No person, including the owner or occupant of any premises abutting on any street, shall throw, place or deposit any snow or ice into or upon any street in the Township except such as falls upon or is formed upon that portion of the property so abutting such street lying within the sidewalk lines thereof. It is the intent and purpose of this section to prohibit all persons from throwing, casting, placing or depositing snow and ice which accumulated within the private property belonging to such persons, upon the sidewalks or streets of the Township. (1967 Code § 21-1-12)
