Sidewalk snow shovelling to be enforced in Pelham

The Tribune, November 4

"The proposed bylaw is needed as there is a great deal of evidence that sidewalks throughout the town are not cleared following events, leading to greater legal liability against the town in the event of a fall leading to injury," said Kelly Walsh, director of community and infrastructure services.

"The creation of a sidewalk snow-clearing bylaw will lead to safer, more pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods throughout the town and should encourage active transportation in the winter months, when people are typically less active."
