The City of Sarnia is seeking the assistance of all citizens to wherever possible, clean snow and ice from the portion of public sidewalk adjacent to their property.
Commercial businesses are required to clear away and remove all ice and snow, to bare concrete, from the sidewalks in front and alongside any buildings or lands. This must be completed within the first four hours of daylight after a snowfall. Homeowners, businesses and contractors working on their behalf should not deposit snow that blocks pedestrian traffic on a sidewalk. These are in direct violations of City By-Law #145 of 1991 7(a).
Sidewalk clearing takes a significant amount of time depending upon snow fall and manpower. Our main objectives are the main road sidewalks especially sidewalks next to curbs, schools and hospitals. All others are only done as time permits or where a definite need exists.
The City of Sarnia would like to thank all residents for complying with the By-Law. If you would like to view the By-Law, please click here.
