Please clear those sidewalks

Thursday, December 17, 2009

The City of Cherokee is encouraging area residents and businesses to please keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice for the safety of pedestrians and themselves.

City Administrator Don Eikmeier said he's been advised that people, including young children, are forced to walk in the streets in certain areas when confronted with plugged or hazardous sidewalks due to snow and ice build-up.

"It's strictly a safety issue," said Eikmeier. "We don't want children or the elderly walking in the streets at winter time."
