Lombard reminds business owners of village ordinances following snowstorms
As November wraps up and the potential for snowy days and nights becomes increasingly likely, the Village of Lombard has issued reminders for business owners reminding them of ordinances dictating snow removal from public sidewalks.
Within 24 hours of a snowstorm, all public sidewalks adjacent to commercial properties must be cleared of snow to make it safe for pedestrians to walk. This is especially important for areas of high traffic such as Main Street near Glenbard East, downtown Lombard and businesses along Roosevelt Road.
Although there is no ordinance requiring people to remove snow from public sidewalks adjacent to residential properties, leaving the snow unattended can be a safety risk to pedestrians.
Residents who have sump pumps that drain toward the front yard are asked to switch the drainage to the back yard during the winter to prevent icing on the sidewalks. There is a village code that requires people with surface water drainage mechanisms to make sure the streets and sidewalks do not get covered in ice.
Anyone with questions about snow or ice removal can call the village’s code enforcement department at (630) 620-5749.
