With the recent snowstorm dumping a heap of snow on the city's sidewalks, some Waltham Patch users have suggested an ordinance that requires residents to clear their sidewalks.
Currently, the city does not have such an ordinance. Main Street property owners, however, are required to clear their sidewalks within 24 hours of snowfall ceasing. That regulation applies to both sides of the street from Prospect Hill Road to Linden Street.
Newton is currently considering extending a two-year trial period that requires all property owners to clear snow from their sidewalk within 30 hoursof the snow falling.
