According to the code — accessible via the city website — propery owners, occupants and tenants are required to clear snow and ice from the sidewalks in front of or alongside their properties within 10 hours after it has stopped falling or forming. If the snow or ice stops falling or forming after 6 p.m., it may be removed at any time before 10 a.m. the following morning.
