UTICA, NY-- Snow covered sidewalks can be a safety issue, but it can also cost you, if you don't remove the snow in front of your home or business.

In Utica residents have 24 hours to remove the snow from their sidewalks, according to Wendy Henderson, of the Utica Codes Department. If the snow isn't removed the property owner would receive a written violation notice. The resident would have a few more days to remove the snow. If the snow isn't removed after that time period the resident would receive an appearance ticket for court. A city judge would determine if a fee of up to $150 fine and/or 15 days in jail, is the appropriate penalty.

Henderson said no one has been placed in jail yet for failing to remove snow.

According to a violation summary report from the codes department, 55 home or business owners were in violation from Nov. 1, 2017 to Jan. 16, 2018.
