Sidewalk Snow Removal Reminder for Residents and Businesses


Winter is officially here and it is important that all responsible parties work to remove snow and ice from city sidewalks.  For property owners that live at street intersections, they are also responsible for shoveling snow all the way to the street and to include the corners.


Please remember that per Chicago Municipal Code 10-8-180: "...every owner, lessee, tenant, occupant or other person having charge of any building or lot of ground in the city abutting upon any public way or public place shall remove the snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of such building or lot of ground."  The City of Chicago may ticket for violations of this ordinance.


For the safety of the entire community, please keep sidewalks free of snow and ice this winter!
