In brief: Spokane Valley: Sidewalks must be cleared

From Local Reports

SPOKANE VALLEY – Spokane Valley residents are being reminding that it’s their responsibility to shovel snow from sidewalks on their property.

The city says local ordinances require that sidewalks be clear of snow and ice within a reasonable amount of time, and violators could face $500 fines.

The goal is to make sure that schoolchildren and others have safe places to walk during the winter rather than competing with cars and trucks for space on roadways.
