Rochester mayor asks public to help keep sidewalks, hydrants clear



Rochester, New York — Rochester’s Mayor Malik D. Evans is reminding residents to keep sidewalks clear.

According to Evans, it’s important to keep fire hydrants clear, too, he said.

According to the City of Rochester’s website, clearing sidewalks of snow is a city-resident partnership.

Current guidelines say removing snow from sidewalks is the responsibility of the owner whose property is adjacent to that walkway, but If the snow rises above four inches, city services will plow the area.

It is illegal to shovel or plow snow onto the street, sidewalk, or public right of way.

Monroe County is under a travel advisory.

People are asked to avoid unnecessary travel in Monroe County and the city.
