Denver –  With forecasts calling for light snow accumulations overnight (trace to about an inch), the City and County of Denver will have its big plow drivers on duty tonight into tomorrow to respond to the main streets. DOTI will not activate its residential plow program given that predicted snow totals are low.

Sidewalk reminder: Denver requires that property owners clear snow and ice from their sidewalks, including adjacent ADA ramps. After snow has stopped falling, businesses need to begin clearing their sidewalks immediately. Residents need to clear their sidewalks by the next day. Inspectors with Community Planning and Development leave a time-stamped notice at properties with un-shoveled sidewalks.  After receiving a notice, businesses have four hours and residences have 24 hours before the inspector’s re-check and a potential $150 fine.
