Mt. Pleasant officials give community members reminders for sidewalk snowplowin­g.

Sidewalk snowplowin­g by city staff does not start until streets, alleys and parking lots have been cleared. City staff snowplows 25 miles of residentia­l sidewalk, no salt is used.

For those residentia­l sidewalks not currently being plowed by City staff, it is advised that the safety family members and neighbors in mind and remove the snow from your sidewalk and mailbox approach as soon as practical after inclement weather.

For Commercial and Industrial Property Owners, city ordinance

requires commercial and industrial property owners to clear sidewalks within 18 hours after sleet, freezing rain or snow stops falling, with the exception of Sundays and holidays. In this case, snow must be cleared by noon the day following the Sunday or holiday.

If the snow or ice is too hard to remove, the owner must spread enough sand or other abrasive material to make travel safe and as soon as weather permits, and must clear a path of at least 48 inches in width.
