Ann Arbor Area Community News
The Washtenaw Bicycling and Walking Coalition publishes a page on local snow removal ordinances. Here’s the Ann Arbor blurb:
General Rules: All snow and ice which has accumulated on the adjacent public sidewalk prior to 6am must be removed by noon. Immediately after the accumulation of ice on such a sidewalk it must be treated with sand, salt or other substance to prevent it from being slippery. Within 24 hours after the end of each accumulation of snow greater than 1 inch, the owner of every residentially zoned property must remove the accumulation from the adjacent public sidewalk.
They also make a handy set of handbills (PDF) that you can distribute to remind property owners to clear their sidewalks. I’ve made my own version that has more information, and I try to carry a couple with me when I go out walking.
Does anyone have any experience with receiving a citation or calling in a violation? Is the response prompt or effective?
