When it snows in Elkhart, grab a shovel... or $25 - Fox 28: South Bend, Elkhart IN News, Weather, Sports

Elkhart Shoveling Ordinance


Posted by Brian Holzgraefe

A new ordinance in Elkhart means clear sidewalks, and a little work.

The owner or occupant of a property must remove all snow and ice from sidewalks along said property within 24 hours after either the last snowfall or build-up of ice.

If you don't, there could be a $25 fine each time.  There will, however, be a hardship exception for those who are unable to clear the snow and ice because of age or physical disability.
