Snow Ordinances Across the Denver Metro
Whether new to the area, or a long-time Colorado native, it’s important to stay updated on your local area’s rules for snow-shoveling. Fines in some areas can be $150 for uncleared sidewalks on the first offense and increase to $500 for a second offense.
Typically, residents have 24 hours and businesses have 4 hours until the snow stops falling to clear all sidewalks adjacent to their property or business.
Tips to help with snow removal:
- Don’t let the snow accumulate too much–keep an eye on precipitation levels
- Try using an ice-melting product to quicken the process and help prevent snow turning to ice later on
- Don’t throw the snow over your back, as this can stress your back
