~ Property owners reminded to remove snow from sidewalks ~
Richmond City Public Works crews have continued work throughout the day to clear city streets. At this time, all primary routes are passable and crews continue snow removal work on secondary streets. Crews expect to begin clearing neighborhood roads later this afternoon. Motorists are advised to use caution around snow plows and to be aware of potential slick spots if it becomes necessary to use the roadways during the overnight period.
The City reminds residents and businesses of the responsibility to remove snow from the sidewalks that are adjacent to their property. Snow left on sidewalks may cause pedestrians to slip, trip or fall which can result in injury. Removal of snow from sidewalks adjacent to private property is the responsibility of the property owner and addressing this issue before dusk may result in easier removal.
