Mayor Dan Bianchi is requesting the cooperation of Pittsfield property owners to insure the safety of its citizens by keeping their sidewalks clear of snow and ice. Please be reminded that schools reopen on Monday and hundreds of students will be walking to school. Children should be able to use the sidewalks and not be placed in jeopardy walking in roads.
City residents are reminded that the City Code states that sidewalks abutting their property must be cleaned of snow within 24 hours of the storm’s end or fines will be assessed. It is also a violation of City ordinance to plow or otherwise dispose of snow from their property onto City streets and sidewalks. Residents are also encouraged to clear snow from around fire hydrants located near their houses. The Mayor is grateful for community cooperation to keep all of our citizens safe by abiding by our regulations.
