Snow piling up in Avon

Daily Staff Report
Avon, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado ” For the second winter in a row, Avon has received an extraordinary amount of snow. Although beautiful and great for our economy, the town is asking property owners to be more diligent about removing snow.

Town laws require:

– Property and business owners to clear all but one inch of snow from adjacent sidewalks within 24 hours.

– All off-street parking or walkway areas must be maintained in a passable condition for the public

– Fire hydrants must be kept clear of snow. If you do see a buried hydrant, please report this to the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District at 970-748-7480.

– No person shall plow, shovel or otherwise deposit any snow on any public way.

Violations of the above laws are considered a civil infraction and may result in a fine of up to $1,000 for every day that the violation occurs.
