Barrington Police Chief John LaCross is reminding residents that they need to comply with the local ordinance that requires the shoveling of sidewalks after a snowstorm.

The local ordinance states all those owning property along a sidewalk must clear the walkway of snow no later than 6 p.m. the day after snow has stopped fallen. Residents must also clear snow around any fire hydrants near their property.

Failure to comply can result in up to a $50 fine.

Police have a list of those who are exempt because they are physically incapable of doing so and cannot pay for removal; police will attempt to contact those who are not exempt and have not complied with the ordinance.
