Snow Removal Reminder

snowsidewalkAs a pro-active measure, the City of Pontiac Ordinance Enforcement Department is issuing this letter so that you are aware that the City has ordinances (law’s) that require business / property owners to keep both public and private sidewalk’s driveways and parking lots properly maintained free of ice and snow in a safe condition during the winter.

To paraphrase, the City of Pontiac Ordinances requires that all property & business owners maintain their property in a safe and sanitary condition (301.2 IPMC), and to clear snow and ice from public sidewalks adjacent to their property within a designated time period of 24 hrs (Article V.102-222).  The ordinance also prohibits transferring or depositing snow and ice from private property onto public property, snow should be removed as to not be piled to obstruct vision in or near the Right-of-Way (ROW).  
 
SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL ORDINANCE (Article V.102-222) The accumulation of snow and ice upon paved sidewalks in the city is a threat to the health, safety, and welfare of the public and is hereby deemed to be a nuisance.
 
Providing clear, safe roadways and pedestrian routes ensures access to jobs, schools and services in our walkable community. The Snow Removal Ordinance and Property Maintenance Code helps ensure safe access for pedestrians and to make all transportation modes available as soon as possible after a snow storm. 
 
Thank you in advanced for your anticipated cooperation.
