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.
