**Sidewalk Clearing Reminder**
You are responsible for keeping your sidewalk clear of snow and ice. This allows people to walk safely. You must clear a 5-foot-wide path along all sidewalks around your property. Any snow cleared from sidewalks should be moved to your yard. Do not push the snow into the street, cover crosswalks, block alley entrances, or pile it around fire hydrants. If you are physically unable to clear snow, you must either hire a contractor, ask a neighbor to help, or contact 211 for assistance. Greg Johnson* has helped other neighbors in the area, he can be reached at 317.652.1741.
