SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL

There is a snow removal ordinance to help keep our sidewalks safe for walking during the winter.If you are the owner or the person who takes care of a house, building or lot where there is a sidewalk, YOU MUST REMOVE SNOW FOR A WIDTH OF THREE FEET FOR THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF THE SIDEWALK. THIS MUST BE DONE WITHIN THE FIRST 12 HOURS OF DAYLIGHT AFTER IT STOPS SNOWING.

Also, SIDEWALKS MUST BE KEPT CLEAR OF ICE OR MADE SAFE BY COVERING THE ICE WITH SAND OR SALT.  DO NOT PUT SNOW OR ICE ONTO THE ROAD OR ANOTHER’S SIDEWALK OR PROPERTY. This is not allowed.  THERE WILL BE FINES FOR EACH AND EVERY DAY THESE RULES ARE NOT FOLLOWED. 

If the Boonton D.P.W. must take care of a sidewalk because the owner or person in charge hasn’t, a lien will be placed against the property. Thank you for making Boonton a safer place by taking care of the sidewalks.
