Redgranite board discusses sidewalk snow removal

During the Feb. 17 Redgranite Village Board regular meeting, board members discussed possible future changes in sidewalk snow removal by village residents and business owners.  

Village President Jerry Sieg told the board that following snowstorms, some residents and businesses are not shoveling their sidewalks within 24 hours, which is the current ordinance requirement. Sieg suggested in the future businesses be required to shovel within 12 hours of the snowfall.   

It was also suggested by board members that the charges for city snow shoveling be increased from the now $45 minimum; the Ordinance Committee will review the current charges and bring proposals for changes to the board at a future meeting.
