BE A GOOD NEIGHBOUR
CLEAR YOUR SNOW AND ICE

The City of Welland passed By-law No. 2008-185 (Sidewalk Snow Clearing By-law) on November 25, 2008, requiring owners or tenants of property to remove snow and ice from public sidewalks adjacent to their property within 24 hours of the end of a substantial snow event.

Clearing the snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your property will make it safer for everyone.

To keep sidewalks clear of ice, some residents choose to use salt.When using salt please be sure to use the minimum requirement to melt ice only.

Please be considerate of neighbours, friends, and family who may require assistance with clearing snow and ice from their sidewalks, and lend a hand when you are able to do so.
