(Neb)-Chadron Reminding Residents To Clear Sidewalks After Snowfalls
CHADRON - Chadron Police Chief Tim Lordino is reminding owners and rentals alike that they are responsible by city ordinance for clearing sidewalks of snow either within 5 hours of the end of a storm or by 8:30 the following morning.
Chief Lordino says that didn't happen in enough places after this week's snow as 55 nuisance reports were received yesterday afternoon in various parts of Chadron. No citations were issue, but Lordino says they could have been.
He emphasizes the entire reason for the ordinance to clear sidewalks is the safety of those who use the sidewalks, and points out that someone who slips on an sidewalk that hasn't been could possibly sue the renter or owner of the surrounding property even though the sidewalk itself is city property.
