What is a Resident's responsibility regarding snow removal?

After a snowstorm, pedestrians often encounter impassable sidewalks and are forced onto snowbanks or into roadways.  As outlined in the Town of Mamaroneck code (see below), the entire sidewalk should be cleared within 24 hours after snow ceases to fall.  Please familiarize yourself with these owner/tenant snow removal responsibilities. Thank you for keeping our Town’s sidewalks safe!

Prompt removal of snow and ice.

Every owner, lessee, tenant, occupant or other person having charge or control of any building or lot of land abutting upon any street or public place where the sidewalk is flagged, concreted or otherwise paved or laid shall, within 24 hours after the snow ceases to fall, remove the snow and ice from such sidewalk so as to provide a continuous passageway. In case the snow and ice on the sidewalk shall be frozen so hard that it cannot be removed without injury to the pavement, the owner, lessee, tenant, occupant or other person hereby charged with the duty to remove the same shall, within the time specified above, cause the sidewalk to be strewn with ashes, sand and/or some other abrasive substance and, thereafter as the weather shall permit, shall thoroughly clean said sidewalk.
