At Tuesday (January 21) night’s Cortland Common Council meeting, city leaders discussed an enforcement effort in the near future of their residential sidewalk snow removal policy.
Council voted unanimously to allow officials at the city code office to start fining those who don’t do so.
Speaking on the topic at last night’s meeting was the city’s interim code enforcement officer Capt. Michael Ten Take.
According to city law, residents have until 6 p.m. the day after a snowfall event to clear sidewalks, and during a sustained event it must be done once every 24 hours.
In any two year period, the first offense is a $25 fine, with a max of five citations and beyond at $250.
