Shovel Those Walkways
According to the town of Farmington, if you own a building or land "bordering a street or public place where there is a paved sidewalk," you must clear any snow, ice and sleet from the sidewalk and layer it with salt and sand within 24 hours or you could be fined for the cost of removal.
There's a new law that requires Connecticut residents to clean the snow off their vehicles, or face a fine.
