All You Need To Know About Greater Boston Real Estate

Not Shoveling Can Cost You Big

With the first measurable snow of the season comes the inevitable Snow Violation tickets from communities around the Greater Boston area.

In Boston and many other communities, residents are required to clear snow from public sidewalks in front of their buildings within a few hours after the snow stops. In Boston it is 3 hours after the snow fall ends or 3 hours after sunrise if the snow stopped during the night.

Failure to do so can result in fines of $50.00 to $200.00 per day. Unlike years past, many communities have also updated their by-laws to have unpaid fines added to annual tax bills for property owners. For more on the host of other rules and regulations on snow removal in Boston, just visit http://www.cityofboston.gov/snow/

If you want to report unshoveled sidewalks in Boston just call City Hall at 617-635-4500 and if you live elsewhere, just contact your local City Hall.
