Darien police want to remind residents to clear their sidewalks of snow and ice within 24 hours after a snowfall.

Per Town of Darien Ordinances (Sec. 66-5(a)), "...The owners of all properties abutting upon sidewalks in the town are required to clear such sidewalks, as their property may abut upon, of snow and ice, within 24 hours after snow or ice shall have formed or have been deposited upon the abutting sidewalk. A person who violates this section is subject to a fine for each offense and the amount of such fine as listed on Appendix D, Table of Ordinance Fines. Each such violation shall be a separate and distinct offense, and each day that such violation continues uncorrected shall be deemed a separate and distinct offense and shall be subject to a fine. For purposes of this section "sidewalk" means a paved surface intended for pedestrian use which runs parallel to a public road within the public right-of-way."
