Pull out the snow shovels…

phmkUnshoveledSidewalksOnMarketSt.The streets are slushy and the Market Street sidewalks are unshoveled as seen during the snowstorm last week in Meeker. Meeker Town Hall is reminding all Meeker residents it is their duty to keep residential and business sidewalks clear of snow or to possibly face a fine up to $1,000—even the businesses along Market Street that didn’t have a sidewalk last winter. Town Administrator Scott Meszaros said the town guidelines are that Meeker residents and businesses have 24 hours after a snow incident to shovel the walks during business days, and no later than 48 hours after a snow event on the weekends. “Like all Municipal Code issues, a citation can be issued and up to a $1,000 fine imposed by the town judge,” Meszaros said, stressing that the town is serious about having the walks cleared in order to avoid accidents and lawsuits.
