Snow Removal from Sidewalks

SNOW REMOVAL FROM SIDEWALKS

The City of Ottawa is reminding its residents and business owners that Sec 86-94 of Ottawa’s Municipal Code requires the property owner or occupant to remove snow and ice accumulating on the abutting sidewalks within 24 hours after any snowfall has ceased. If the snow or ice cannot be removed, the surface shall be covered with sand or otherwise treated to lessen the hazard for pedestrians
