Meridian Township's snow removal ordinance requires residents to clear the snow and ice from the sidewalks along their property within 24 hours following a snow fall.
If more than 2 inches of snow or ice remain after the first 24 hours, the owner will be notified by the Township that it must be cleared. Owners will then have an additional 24 hours to clear the snow or ice. If it is not cleared within the second 24 hours period the Township will remove it and bill the home owner. This payment must be made within 30 days of receiving the bill.
This process is put into place to ensure that the snow (or ice) is removed and the ordinance is enforced to ensure safety of residents.
Residents who will be out of town are expected to make arrangements for snow removal.
