Pretty please … clear those walks

City officials are asking residents to clear their sidewalks of the snow that hit town a few days back.

The snowfall was less than four inches — the point at which a city ordinance kicks in providing fines for failing to clear your walk within 24 hours of the end of a storm.

But Public Works Director Suzette Robinson says it’s still important to clear the walks so that everybody, including persons with disabilities and the elderly, can travel freely.

With remaining snow now packed down amid unusually cold temperatures, sand and salt may be the best options for making the walks safer for pedestrians.

There have also been reports that some residents who haven’t cleared their walks have received nasty-grams from the post office — saying they’ll get no more mail delivery until their walks are safe for letter carriers.
