Barrington sidewalk ordinance in effect


Barrington residents living along sidewalks have more to shovel than just their driveways.

A local ordinance mandates that all those with property abutting a sidewalk must clear the walkway 6 p.m. following the day of the snow fall.

Residents must also remove any snow covering a fire hydrant.

Failing to comply with the ordinance can result in up to a $50 fine.

To read the entire ordinance or view a map of local sidewalks, visit the police department's website.
