[ARCHIVED] Request Made to Clear Sidewalks

The City of Cedar Falls is notifying residents who have not cleared their sidewalks of snow that hazards do exist for both pedestrians and homeowners. If a pedestrian slips and falls on a snow-covered sidewalk, the homeowner could have some liability in the incident. City officials have noticed that elderly residents, children walking to school, and joggers have been using the streets rather than the sidewalks due to the lack of snow removal from some properties.

The city’s Code Enforcement Unit has been notifying those who have snow covered sidewalks that they must clear their sidewalks of loose snow. The freezing rain has caused some sidewalks to be ice covered and the city recognizes that there has been difficulty in removing the ice. However, the loose snow on top of the ice must be removed. Sand and salt on top of the ice will help make the sidewalk passable. Residents having corner lots must make efforts to keep the corners clear and passable as well.

The upcoming forecast of warming temperatures combined with some deicer, may present an opportunity for people to remove some ice from their sidewalks.
