Plattsburgh looks to rework snow removal policy

Posted: Updated:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

Plattsburgh city officials are looking ahead to next winter, working on different ways to clear sidewalks of ice and snow.

The current system calls for residents to remove snow on the sidewalk in front of their property 24 hours after a storm. After that, the city takes care of it at a cost to the property owner.

In response to residents voicing concern after this harsh winter, the Plattsburgh Common Council will put together a community support system for snow removal. It’s a list of paid services to remove snow.

"I encourage the public to remain engaged, I think many of our best initiatives that have come through the council and through the mayor's office have come as a result of people feeling as though they can ask their public officials to take some action," said Rachelle Armstrong from the Plattsburgh Common Council.

The city clerk is coming up with a call-list residents can use if they need help to removing snow. This list will include volunteers in the area.
