Loudoun County Sheriff's Office Asks for Help in Clearing Sidewalks

It's not necessarily about traffic or transit, but many Loudoun County commuters have kids in school, live near a school or know someone who does. So we thought we'd pass this info along from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, which is asking for assistance from county residents who live in designated school walking areas to clear their sidewalks of ice and snow.

Although warmer weather is in the forecast for this weekend, many of the sidewalks surrounding county schools remain covered in ice and snow. Clearing sidewalks can ensure the safety of school children who walk to school as well as Sheriff’s Office Crossing Guards.

Loudoun County Code 1022.01 requires residents under certain circumstances must remove snow from sidewalks. The code states every occupant, owner or other person in charge of property in the County which has a sidewalk, or a footway of stone, brick, gravel, cinder, wood, or other substance, when such a walk is publicly owned or maintained, and is adjoining and touching the property in front, rear, or either side thereof, shall have all snow and ice, or a combination thereof removed from such sidewalk or footway.

Of course our solution to the problem of snow and ice is to just not have anymore. All in favor!?
