In regards to the snow shoveling ordinance: What exceptions are made for people who can't clear off their sidewalks due to their age, health, etc.?

According to city spokeswoman Megan Gilliland, there are no exceptions to the sidewalk snow removal ordinance. Elderly people or people with health conditions that limit their ability to shovel their sidewalks can contact the Safe Winter Walkways program at 832-3338 for volunteer help to clear sidewalks. All property owners are required to either clear their sidewalks within 48 hours of a snowfall or make arrangements to have their sidewalks cleared. Fifty-four people have volunteered to shovel snow through the Safe Winter Walkways program but additional volunteers are always welcomed to help clear sidewalks.
