Pittsfield Township considers stricter snow removal policy
The Pittsfield Township board is considering an ordinance that requires residents to keep their sidewalks clear after every snowfall or drift that leaves 1 inch of snow on the surface, according to a Saline Reporter story.
Under the proposal, residents would have 24 hours to clear their walks before the township could call them to remove the snow and ice.
Residents who didn't clear their sidewalks following the warning could face a $50 fine, the Chronicle reported. The ordinance was reportedly modeled after one in Ann Arbor.
One trustee said the ordinance is too harsh and that 1 inch of snow is not enough to warrant a fine.
