Good Neighbors Clear Their Sidewalks of Ice & Snow. Be A Good Neighbor.

County Executive Ike Leggett today said it is time for residents to clear snow from sidewalks in front of their homes, as required by County law. 

“For those who have already cleared their walks, I say ‘Thank you.’ For those who haven’t, now is the time – 100 hours after the storm passed. 

“I urge people to finish clearing their sidewalks now,” said Leggett. “The County will begin accepting complaints on Thursday at 10:00 a.m.; those complaints can be filed online at”

County residents are required by law to clear sidewalks in front of and alongside their properties within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm.

But don’t just do it because it’s the law.

  • Do it for schoolkids.
  • Do it for older adults.
  • Do it for folks who depend on transit.
  • Do it for yourself and your family.
  • When shoveling, please keep snow clear from fire hydrants!


Take the time during inclement weather and its aftermath to check up on older adults and vulnerable people who live near you, especially those who live alone.

Working together, Montgomery County can stay safe and warm this winter.
