EASTPOINTE — City officials announced that while Eastpointe’s snow removal ordinance is still in place, they will no longer warn repeat violators in advance of a contractor removing the snow for them.

The ordinance requires businesses and homeowners to remove snow from all city sidewalks that border their property. Previously, properties in violation of the ordinance were tagged with an orange sticker, warning them that they had 24 hours to remove the snow, or the city would remove it, and they would be fined. Then, a red tag would announce the fine.
