Snow on Sidewalk

The County Code (Section 49-24A) requires property owners to clear adjacent sidewalks of snow and ice within 24 hours after the snow event. To report an uncleared sidewalk adjacent to a multi-family residential development, call the Department of Housing and Community Affairs, Code Enforcement section, at 240-777-3785. To report an uncleared sidewalk adjacent to a single-family residence, please use our online reporting form (Outside Link). For additional information on snow operations, click here. (Outside Link)

(Please note that property owners are not required to clear sidewalks behind their property or to clear bikeways.)
