Winter Sidewalk Maintenance

Kitchener is expanding its winter sidewalk maintenance program. New for the 2018/2019 winter season, bylaw officers will be proactively inspecting sidewalks citywide. If a sidewalk is not cleared of snow and ice, a bylaw officer will issue a one-time notice to the resident, and return within 24 hours.

If the sidewalk has still not been adequately cleared, the city will clear it and the property owner will be invoiced approximately $400.
