Police Department Reminds Residents Of Snow Removal Requirements

The Chillicothe Police Department reminds the public of their responsibility to clear snow from their sidewalks.  City Ordinance is 505.210.

Sargent Jeremy Stephens says Chillicothe’s sidewalk snow removal ordinance requires residents and businesses to clear their adjacent public sidewalks of snow and ice in a timely manner.

Providing clear, safe sidewalks for pedestrian routes ensures access to jobs, schools and services in our community. The snow removal ordinance helps ensure safe access for pedestrians and to make all transportation modes available as soon as possible after a snow storm.

City Administrator Darin Chappell recognizes the city’s responsibility for clearing snow on City Owned Property and says they will get to those as soon as possible.  He says their first priority for snow removal is the clearing of the streets.
