It may seem strange to focus on snow as we approach the start of summer, but in Virginia, Arlington County's Board is expected to decide on a new snow removal ordinance this weekend.
The ordinance would require all homeowners and businesses to clear their sidewalks 24 to 36 hours after a snowfall, or face a $100 fine.
County Board member Mary Hynes says on Saturday the board may decide to lower the fine and whether to grant waivers to the elderly or residents with disabilities.
"The real goal for us is safety and mobility," says Hynes. "We're such a walkable community, and when we get a little snow, people rely on their feet a little more than their car."
Hynes says the tricky part is finding an ordinance that works for record-breaking snowfalls like the one experienced in February, and also for storms that leave sidewalks covered with just a few inches.
