Borough of Litchfield – Snow and Ice Removal
The Litchfield Board of Warden and Burgesses would like to remind Borough residents that, according to Article III Sec. 95-7 and 95-8 of the Borough Code, The owner, agent of the owner or occupant of any building or land bordering upon any street, park or public place within the Borough of Litchfield, except crosswalks and park walks, where there is a sidewalk shall cause to be removed therefrom any and all snow, sleet and ice within eight (8) hours after sunrise, when the same shall have fallen in the night, and whenever any such sidewalk or any part thereof shall be covered with ice, the owner, agent or occupant of the building or lot adjacent thereto shall, within one (1) hour thereafter during the daytime or within one (1) hour after sunrise when it falls during the night, cause such sidewalk to be made safe and convenient by removing the ice therefrom or by covering the same with sand or other suitable substance.
Failure to comply will result in the Borough sidewalk committee ordering the cleaning and sanding of the sidewalk and a 25% surcharge will be added to the cost to be paid by the owner or occupant.
