Homeowners Required to Clear Sidewalks Within 24 Hours

OMAHA (KPTM)- Assoon as that snow hits, it probably means work for you getting your sidewalks cleared.

Even though it's bitterly cold, it has to be done because ifyou don't you can easily end getting billed because the city had to do it.

Omaha City law states that homeowners have 24 hours to cleartheir sidewalks after a major snow.

If the homeowner doesn't clear their sidewalk after beingwarned by the city, crews will come out and do it-and the homeowner will paythe bill.

Even though sidewalks are on private property, they areconsidered public, and must be maintained.
