NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNERS

DUTY TO KEEP SIDEWALKS CLEAN OF ICE & SNOW

According to Village of Antwerp Ordinance No. 2011-10, Owners or occupants of lots or lands abutting any sidewalk shall keep sidewalks in repair and free from snow, ice or any nuisance and to remove all snow and ice accumulated within a reasonable time, which ordinarily should not exceed twelve (12) hours after any storm which snow or ice is accumulated. Should the property owner not clear the snow, the village can cause the snow or ice to be removed and charge said property owner for the removal. Complaints have been received by the Village that students walking to and from school and residents are having to walk in the road right-of-way due to sidewalks now being cleared.
