Snow ordinance in Marion Heights
MARION HEIGHTS - Borough council reminds residents about ordinances as they pertains to snow and winter weather.
According to the borough's ordinances, anyone who plows snow must haul it away. It must not be pushed into streets or onto pavements. Also, all residents must have their pavements shoveled with an at least 36-inch path after each snowfall ends. Anyone who fails to follow the rules will be cited.
Also, due to the numerous complaints of inconsiderate plowers, council is working on a plow permit ordinance with a $25 fee, set to be enacted at the April meeting.
