Failure to comply will result in the Borough sidewalk committee ordering the cleaning and sanding of the sidewalk and a 25% surcharge will be added to the cost to be paid by the owner or occupant. For further information, please visit the Borough website at www.boroughoflitchfield.org or call Gerry Perusse at 860 567-5640.
