With the possibility of winter weather lurking every week, Tamaqua residents are reminded of borough rules concerning sidewalks.
Property owners are required to maintain a clear path, at least three feet wide, on sidewalks.
Snow and/or ice must be removed from these pathways within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm.
Snow, ice and other materials may not be thrown into the streets. Fines may be imposed on anyone caught throwing snow or ice into the street or who fails to maintain a snow-free pathway.
