The Prince George’s County Department of Permits, Inspections and Enforcement reminds residents and businesses – owners, tenants and managers – of residential and commercial properties with sidewalks adjacent to their properties that they are responsible for snow removal and de-icing sidewalks.
Failure to clear snow and ice may result in fines being imposed according to county code.
Prince George’s County Code Section 23-150 requires responsible parties to remove accumulated snow and ice from adjoining sidewalks within 48 hours of snowfall or accumulated ice to a depth of two inches or more. Persons who do not clear sidewalks adjacent to their property within 24 hours of the end of a major snowfall event will be issued a recall notice by a DPIE inspector. After another 24 hours, the DPIE inspector will carry out a second inspection. If people have not cleared their sidewalks within the designated 48 hours after a major snowfall event ends, the inspector will issue a ticket with a fine of $100 per day.
Additional citations may be issued for subsequent 24 hour periods until the accumulated snow and ice is cleared. Fines will continue to accumulate with each successive citation. If snow and ice are not removed in a timely manner, the county has the power to hire a contractor to clear it and add the costs to the fines.
