Keep sidewalks maintained and clear
Leaves, snow and ice can make sidewalks a slippery mess. Property owners in unincorporated Washington County are responsible for maintaining sidewalks adjacent to their property. This includes keeping them clear of debris, leaves, snow and ice, so they're safe for people walking and biking. Winter is right around the corner and icy sidewalks can be tricky for many people to navigate including kids and neighbors getting to the bus or picking up the mail.
Falling on a slick sidewalk can lead to ankle injuries, broken bones or wrist injuries. Please keep sidewalks clear and safe this winter. If a portion of sidewalk is damaged and needs to be repaired property owners may need to apply for a county-right-of-way permit.
