New Snow Removal Regulation Takes Effect In Wheeling

The snow hasn’t flown yet, but when it does, there will be a new snow removal law in effect for Wheeling…

Wheeling City Council this week was in full agreement about putting a new law in place. It boils down to this…if you own a business and leave a dangerous amount of snow on a walkway, there could be fines in your future. The measure would allow the city to charge $175 per hour for labor to get that snow out of there and if the bill for that isn’t paid in a year’s time, add six percent itnerest. The measure gives business owners a 24 hour period to tackle snow in such a situation where snow or ice accumulates.
