GLADWIN – As Winter has finally arrived, the City would like to remind Gladwin residents and business owners about snow removal on sidewalks. The winter season always brings along with it that dreaded cold weather and snow.
The City would like to remind everyone about the one ordinance that is brought to the forefront, due to Old Man Winter, sidewalk snow removal. The ordinance requires that each property and/or business owner keep their sidewalks free from snow and ice.
During the last couple of years, extra efforts have been made to ensure voluntary compliance in making our sidewalks safe to travel for our children walking to and from school, for our less mobile citizens who depend on electric mobile devices to get around the City, and for those that walk for exercise.
To our senior citizens, children and visitors of Gladwin, clean sidewalks are indicative of community pride, genuine concern for everyone’s safety, and displays a lasting impression that Gladwin is really a great place to live, work, or visit.
A high percentage of our citizens and businesses have maintained their sidewalks through the years and we appreciate it. Thank you for you continued cooperation in keeping the sidewalks clear. (Gladwin City ordinance #96.29)
