If you haven’t yet cleared your sidewalks from Monday’s big winter storm, you better get to work: The Verona Police said Thursday that they are going to begin enforcing Ordinance 460-7. Verona’s snow removal rule carries a fine of up to $2,000 if you don’t clear the snow and ice in a timely manner.
Technically, the VPD is a bit late on this. Ordinance 460-7 mandates that an owner or tenant has only 24 hours after the snow has ended to remove such snow or ice from their sidewalks. If the snow or ice has become so frozen that you can’t get it off, you must cover it with sand or some other substance that would improve traction. Failure to comply could result in a lien against the property.
