Mayor Roberts Encourages Citizen Input on City’s Ordinances for Snow Removal on Sidewalks
Recently, City Council alerted residents of its intent to proactively enforce the current Edgerton City Code, requiring property owners to remove snow and ice on the sidewalk within 12 hours from the time of snow fall or when the ice storm ceases. The code also states snow accumulation overnight should be removed within 12 hours after sunrise of the following day.
Mayor Roberts encourages citizens to provide feedback regarding sidewalk snow removal – positive or negative – by emailing email@example.com. Feedback and comments received by Monday, March 17th will be shared with all City Council Members prior to the upcoming work session on Thursday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall. If a citizen does not have access to email, written comments may be dropped off at City Hall during regular business hours or placed in the city’s night deposit box.
Discussion at the Work Session will consider the future direction of the City’s sidewalk snow removal regulations. Citizens are welcome to attend the Work Session with time allotted for limited public comments. To accommodate public participation, the Work Session may move from City Hall to an alternative location. In advance, alternative location information will be posted to www.edgertonks.org and at City Hall.
What: Citizens are encouraged to send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding sidewalk snow removal prior to March 17 so they may be shared with all City Council Members prior to the work session.
Where: The public is welcome to attend the City Council Work Session, Thursday, March 20 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall.
