Changes Considered for Custer Snow Removal Ordinance

The City of Custer is considering revisions to its snow removal ordinance, reports the Custer County Chronicle. The ordinance was not strictly enforced following a snowstorm with temperatures dropping well below zero

Under the city’s snow removal ordinance, city businesses must have their walkways cleared by 9:00 a.m. However, during the recent snow storm, temperatures were hovering around 15 below zero by the time the snow should have been removed per the ordinance. The city council is now considering amending the ordinance to allow for exceptions when it is unsafe to be outside long enough to clear walkways.
