Snow removal laws in effect

By Staff | Feb 19, 2010

The Corporation of Shepherdstown would like to remind property owners and renters that we have a policy regarding snow accumulation on sidewalks.

Section 11-407 Prohibited accumulation of snow, ice and debris on sidewalks and removal thereof by town at expense of property owners provides that.

“No person shall permit the accumulation of snow or ice upon the sidewalk adjacent to any property owned or occupied by him/her within the town, but shall remove the same within a reasonable time not later than 9 a.m., and 4 p.m., each day that snow or ice accumulates thereon.”

Note: Residents who are not physically capable of removing snow may call Mayor Jim Auxer at (304) 876-2605 to make arrangements for snow removal.
