The Town would like to take this opportunity to remind Parker residents that it is the homeowner's responsibility to remove snow and ice from all sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours of the end of any snow, sleet or freezing rain. Failure to do so in the specified time frame is a violation of the Town's Municipal Code and can result in a fine to the homeowner.
Snow left on walks turns into ice and makes for hazardous walking conditions for neighbors, including school children and the elderly. Once notice of violation is given to the homeowner, any snow and ice must be removed within 24 hours. After that time, the Town may make arrangements to have it cleared at the resident's expense.
Individuals can also reduce the potential for ice by shoveling snow into their yard after a storm, rather than into the street and gutters.
We know that our residents want to keep Parker’s streets and sidewalks safe for travel following a storm and our staff prefers to work with homeowners to resolve these safety issues, rather than having to step into an enforcement role.
