Property owners responsible for sidewalk snow removal

As the area receives another dose of winter weather and snow over the weekend, municipality officials in Door and Kewaunee County remind city residents that keeping their sidewalks clear of snow and ice is the property owners’ responsibility.  Sturgeon Bay Municipal Services Director Mike Barker says that city ordinances require snow to be removed from sidewalks promptly.


Property owners can face fines or be charged for the eventual snow removal from sidewalks by the municipality.  You could also be sued for a form of negligence if someone would slip and be injured because of failure to remove snow or ice from sidewalks.
