The Bristol Commission for Persons with Disabilities is reminding residents to keep their sidewalks clean and clear.

All citizens including those with physical or visual impairments, rely on property owners to properly maintain their sidewalks, particularly during winter months.

City Ordinance Sec. 21 indicates that every owner or occupant of land adjoining any street or part of a street adjacent to whose land there is a paved sidewalk, and sidewalks with wheelchair ramps, shall clear such sidewalk and sidewalks with wheelchair ramps, of snow within twelve (12) hours after a storm which ends between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. and within nine (9) hours after a storm which ends between 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.; and whenever ice shall form on such sidewalk, and sidewalk wheelchair ramps, shall either remove the same within such time, or cover it with salt and sand, so that it shall be safe for travel.

This Public Service Announcement is provided by the City of Bristol – Commission for Persons with Disabilities, and The Roundup.
