Now that crews in Lincoln have gotten a chance to clear the roads, the city is now enforcing the sidewalk clearing ordinance Wednesday.

Public Works responded to calls about homes with unshoveled walks and began posting notices on doors Wednesday. If they receive a second call and nothing has been done, a letter will be sent out. A third call means Public Works will hire a contractor to do the job at the expense of the resident. That could cost about $150.

Glenn Funk with Public Works said shoveling may not be a job many people like to do, but it still must get done.

By early Wednesday night, 60 notices had been left.
