We live in Colorado and we know it snows in the winter. But sometimes it is easy to forget that we are responsible to remove the snow. But don’t forget this town has lots of bikers and pedestrians who use people power to get them around even in the snow, sleet and ice. It is important to know if snow removal is a tenant’s responsibility of that of the owner. If you do not know, ask! Either way, being prompt about snow and ice removal is a courteous thing to do as well as the law!
Here is what you need to know: When the snow falls or the ice builds up don’t forget you have 24 hours from when the snow stops to get the sidewalks shoveled.
Here is some important resources during the winter in Boulder:
Request a Snow Plow or Report Sidewalk Snow and Ice: www.inquireboulder.com and submit a “snow plow request”
