Enfield Implements $75 Sidewalk Shoveling Fine

As the state continues to dig out after the Blizzard of 2015, the town of Enfield is implementing a "24 hour sidewalk clock," requiring residents to clear snow from their sidewalks by 5 p.m. Thursday or face a $75 fine.

According to information posted to the town website, the clock starts at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Residents are responsible for shoveling sidewalks outside their homes and will be required to pay $75 and foot the bill for snow removal costs if they fail to do so. Enfield police are enforcing the fine.

Outside contractors are being released at the end of the day after helping to clear 12 town roads Wednesday. The Department of Public Works expect to finish removing snow from Hartford Avenue, Bigelow Avenue, White Street, Union Street, Lafayette Street, Sanford Avenue and Carpet Street on Thursday.

Trash and recycling collection will resume Thursday after a two-day snow delay and the town transfer station will reopen at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
