Borough Ordinance 21-5.2 – Casting of Snow or Ice.

It is the intent and purpose of this provision to prohibit all persons from throwing, casting, placing or depositing snow and ice which accumulates within the private property belonging to such persons upon the sidewalks or streets of the Borough.
