Residents must clear sidewalks of snow, ice
Focus on pedestrian safety
With snow season well underway in Louisville, residents and business owners are reminded that they are responsible for clearing snow and ice from the sidewalks along their properties. Under Louisville Metro Code of Ordinances 97.113:
- Owners or occupants must after each snowfall remove within 24 hours thereafter such snow as may fall on the sidewalks in front of their property.
- Any responsible party failing to comply…shall be subject to the following fines: not less than $25, nor more than $100.
We also urge that snow removed from the sidewalk be placed on private property such as lawns, and not in the street where it would slow or reverse progress of plowing crews.
