SUBJECT: NEWS RELEASE
CITY OF PITTSBURGH PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT
REMOVAL OF SNOW & ICE FROM SIDEWALKS


Last year, due to a State of Emergency caused by the blizzard of 2010, the City of Pittsburgh placed a
moratorium on issuing citations to anyone failing to clear their sidewalks of ice and snow in a timely
manner.

A state of emergency no longer exists and the moratorium has been lifted. Under normal
circumstances, it is the law to clear sidewalks of ice and snow 24 hours after a snow event. Therefore,
please be advised that city inspectors will be out this year citing businesses and residents who do not
comply with the law.

City Code 419.03:

EVERY TENANT, OCCUPANT, OR PROPERTY OWNER HAVING THE CARE OR CHARGE OF
ANY LAND OR BUILDING FRONTING ON ANY STREET IN THE CITY, WHERE THERE IS A
SIDEWALK…WITHIN 24HRS AFTER THE FALL OF ANY SNOW OR SLEET, OR THE
ACCUMULATION OF ICE CAUSED BY FREEZING RAINFALL, CAUSE THE SAME TO BE
REMOVED FROM THE SIDEWALK.
