Property owners in Kansas City who haven’t cleared their sidewalks of snow and ice face possible fines, with most ranging between $25 to $100 starting today.
Kansas City started enforcing its sidewalk clearing ordinance, which requires property owners to remove “all ice and snow within a reasonable time.”
The city announced last week people can make complaints by calling the city’s 311 Call Center at 311 or 816-513-1313. Complaints can also be filed online at www.kcmo.org/311.
The complaints are handled by the Neighborhood Preservation Division of the City’s Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department.
