ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The public works department is reminding owners that sidewalks and public ways adjacent to properties must be cleared of snow within 24 hours of accumulation.

As part of the city's commercial snow removal ordinance, a property owner cannot place snow onto the city's right-of-way, including the sidewalk and street.

The property owner has until noon the following day after a snow or ice accumulation to complete the removal. Anyone in violation of the ordinance may receive a fine.
