DENVER -- Local shoveling laws are in effect after Monday's snowstorm as a way to keep pedestrians safe.
Most every city in the Denver metro area requires residents to clear sidewalks after a storm.
In Denver, Aurora and may other cities, residents have 24 hours after the snow stops falling. That means sidewalks should be cleared by noon Tuesday.
Residents can face fines starting at $150 for not doing it, but the city will typically will issue a warning ahead of time.
There are a number of new apps such as Lawn love and Snohub that will get someone to do the shoveling. Think of it like an Uber for a sidewalk.
Residents sign up and tell a local person with a shovel or snowblower where to shovel. The price starts at about $50 for most areas.
