The City of Syracuse is getting ready for winter, and they will be shoveling the sidewalks.
Director of Operations Corey Driscoll-Dunham outlined the plan to Syracuse's Common Council on Wednesday. She says that the initial pilot program will be done by a private contractor and will focus on 20 miles of priority areas. A request for proposal for the contract will be going out soon.
In total there are 586 miles of sidewalks in the City of Syracuse. It is still the priority of property owners Citywide to clear their sidewalk.
City Hall also brought up to the Common Council increasing the availability of legal sledding in Syracuse. It has been illegal to sled in Syracuse since a child broke their leg in the 30s.
