Good morning,

Following Sunday night’s snowfall, the City of Athens sent a tweet reminding “everyone to clear their sidewalks in a timely manner.”

Here’s another reminder: Failing to shovel the walkway in front of your residence could result in a minor misdemeanor charge and a fine of up to $100, according to Athens City Code.

And how timely is timely, anyway? City code doesn’t leave much to the imagination. You, as an occupant of a building “bordering on any street with graded or paved sidewalk,” have just four hours after snowfall to clear the ice or snow.

Fines can be issued for each day residents do not clear their sidewalks. So keep a shovel handy.
