In Chicago, there are laws in place regarding snow build up on the sidewalk. Due to the fact that excess snow can result in hazards for pedestrians, the person in charge of the property must remove snow from sidewalks. Citing Section 10-8-180 of Chicago’s Municipal Code, every “owner, lessee, tenant, occupant, or other person in charge of any building … abutting upon any public way or public place shall… remove any snow and ice from any sidewalk …”
What this means is if your property is located in front of a sidewalk or walkway, it is your duty to remove snow that may be a hazard to pedestrians. This law is applicable to all owners, tenants, and occupants of any kind. This may cause a bit of a headache for busy homeowners or residents who have better things to do than clean up snow build-up for the good of the public. That’s where Snow Pushers comes in.
