KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The city of Kansas City, Mo., will begin enforcing the provisions of the sidewalk clearing ordinance on Monday morning, they said in a release Friday.

Residents may make complaints regarding uncleared sidewalks to the 311 Call Center beginning Monday morning by calling 311 or 816-513-1313 or online at www.kcmo.org/311.

Penalties for non-compliance will depend on the violation’s severity — typically between $25 to $100, the city said.

According to Sec. 64.246 of the Code of Ordinances, “it shall be the duty of all persons owning or occupying any real property, fronting upon any street, boulevard or highway, to remove from the sidewalks in front or alongside of such property all ice and snow within a reasonable time after cessation of a storm depositing such ice or snow. The provisions of chapter 62, article III, pertaining to littering, and penalties for violations thereof, shall be applicable to violations of this section.”
