Mayor Tim Haak's Monthly Update   
 
Last month, at our first Town Council meeting of the year, I read my executive order on bias crimes. This order provides additional education and outreach in Zionsville to ensure that those who commit bias crimes are properly identified.



Zionsville is a place that values the diversity of our residents. We have a reputation for being welcoming to all. I will continue to advocate for statutory protections for residents, visitors and businesses and ask the legislature to provide enhanced penalties for those who commit hate crimes in our community.

In addition, the Zionsville Town Council unanimously passed a resolution encouraging the Indiana General Assembly to pass bias crimes legislation at the state level during the 2019 legislative session.

Both the executive order and resolution address protections for all regardless of race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, nationality, gender identity or sexual orientation.

We have shared our resolution with Governor Holcomb and members of the Indiana General Assembly.

Thanks for your time, 
 
Tim Haak 
Zionsville Mayor

Reminder to property owners and businesses: Zionsville sidewalk clearing 
Zionsville's snow clearing ordinances
 
With a few exceptions (see below), the Town cannot regularly clear snow from all pathways and sidewalks in Zionsville. This responsibility legally falls to the abutting property owners. By Title V, Chapter 53, ยง53.16 of the Town code, abutting property owners are required to remove snow, ice and debris from any sidewalk or pathway that passes along their property (front/side/rear) to a minimum width of four feet by noon of the second day after a snowfall. This minimum width was included so those living along wider pathways are not burdened more than those living along a narrower sidewalk.  
 
Certain Town properties are covered under this same ordinance. The Parks Department has the same obligations on particular pathways and sidewalks, including: Mulberry Fields perimeter pathways, Village Corner sidewalk, Lincoln Park sidewalks, Elm Street Green sidewalks along the road, American Legion Trail Crossing along the parks southern border and the sidewalks around the two Town-owned parking lots.
