But this year, officials say they’re going to respond more quickly to people who ignore those letters. City crews will be sent out to clear the snow, and they’ll be there twice as fast as they were in the past.

Property owners will be billed for the city’s cleanup work. And there’s no escape; unpaid fines will be tacked on to property tax bills.

For more information on how to shovel snow and avoid fines, check out the city’s video guide, also available in Spanish, Hmong and Somali.
