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.
