Montgomery County snow removal fines may spike to $500
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. — The Montgomery County Council has proposed a bill that would make failing to shovel your sidewalk very expensive.
The bill would make commercial property owners subject to a Class A violation, which means they could be hit with a $500 fine if they violate the county’s snow clearing laws.
Residential homes would still only be subject to a Class C fine, which comes with a price tag of $50.
“Restoring mobility for every mode-including motorists, transit, pedestrians, and bicyclists-should be the County’s priority after snow events,” said Councilman Hans Riemer, who introduced the bill.
