Some sidewalk snow clearing is not the responsibility of cities and towns. With the first storm of winter in the books for the season, municipalities are reminding residents and businesses about laws on the books to clear the sidewalk in front of their property. Only some towns and cities in the state have transferer the liability to abutting property owners. Danbury is among the cities that have such an ordinance. Failure to clear a sidewalk within four hours of daylight after the storm stops could result in a $100 fine. Wilton has set a fine of $99 if the sidewalks aren't taken care of within the first six hours of daylight following a storm. In Bethel, the fine is $50.
