Who is responsible for shoveling sidewalks?

Jefferson County does not have an ordinance requiring citizens to shovel sidewalks, but the county encourages citizens to shovel walks adjacent to their homes as a courtesy to their neighbors and for the safety of pedestrians.

Residents of incorporated areas are urged to check with their city governments for any policies regarding snow removal from sidewalks. Residents in unincorporated areas of Jefferson County who live within the boundaries of a homeowners association are urged to check with their HOA for any regulations regarding sidewalk maintenance.
