City looks at winter care of sidewalks

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

Who takes care of this portion of sidewalk? What should be done if it's not shoveled?

Those are just two of the questions the city of New Prague is considering as it looks at the care of sidewalks in the community. The city is specifically looking at the removal of snow from the sidewalks.

The city's ordinance on the maintenance of sidewalks states that the owner and the occupant of any property adjacent to a public sidewalk will remove snow, ice, dirt and rubbish as soon as possible, beginning 12 hours after it has been deposited.
