City issues reminder on sidewalk clearing

January 11, 2013

Snow sure can be pretty... hard to walk through when it’s piled up on the sidewalk. The City of Warren reminds its residents and business owners that it has an ordinance that covers snow shoveling....

Can someone tell the plows to slow down please. I clean my walk and then the plow comes by and fills it back in. I live on a corner with a stop sign, how fast do the need to be going with a stop sign coming up? I've fought the city on this issue before and either get the run around or threatened being sued for harassment! Yes you read that right! I'm 62 and disabled, I take care of my responsibility of clearing the walk just for the city to fill it back in? Come on! Please plow people slow down! I expect me driveway to be plowed in, but not my sidewalk!

What's unproductive is the snowplow going through and blocking my driveway with the snow it's plowing. I have had surgery on my neck and back and it's not easy for me to work that hard and I don't have anyone to help me clear it. I walk for my health and can't even do tht because no one is shoveling like they're supposed to in the residential area I live in. Even Whirleys didn't clear their sidewalks on Laurel until after the 2nd snowfall this year. So the city needs to step up a bit as far as I'm concerned. I haven't seen one plow on our street in the 3 significant snowfalls we've had so far this winter. and we wouldn't have accidednts if warren county got the plows out knowing we were supposed to get hammered.

I'm not saying there aren't some "billy bob's out there that think snow is fun to drive recklessly in but I think the city and county should take some blame for some of the accidents.

This reminder is the extent of the enforcement, like so many of their other ordinances.

Sorry you are so bitter, Lifelongresident. The rest of us are glad tney are making an effort to help keep sidewalks clear. If people were more responsible, they wouldn't have to run articles like this. Do you actually think the City has enough employees to cite everyone that doesn't shovel? If they did, you'd probably complain about too many City employees.

It is also sooo enjoyable listening to people whine about how homeowners don't shovel their walks, only to find out that they rent from an apartment house or building..perhaps these A Hats need to consider compassion..I know in this day and age its hard to do...

Snow doesn't magically disappear after the snowplow touches it. It will always be pushed across driveways and over sidewalks especially on streets where the sidewalk is close to the road. I commend the property owners that maintain their walks and feel sorry for the elderly that are unable to do it(physically or financially).
