Newton Passes Law Requiring Homeowners To Clear Snow
NEWTON (CBS) – Starting next fall, people in Newton will be on a deadline after a snowstorm.
Newton officials just passed a new rule that says homeowners have to clear snow and ice within 30 hours of a storm. Officials debated this new rule all winter.
For the first two years of the law (from this November until November 2013), homeowners who don’t clear the snow will just get a warning with no fine.
