EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) - Many roads in West Michigan are still snow covered or icy because of the relentless snow over the past couple of days.
But there's also concern about sidewalks not being shoveled.
We looked into the issue and learned that policies vary from community to community. In Grand Rapids and Alpine Township property owners are required to clean their sidewalks.
In East Grand Rapids the city will do it but they can't plow down to the pavement.
"With a snow plow plowing the sidewalks we have to keep it one or two inches above the sidewalk or we'll be chipping the sidewalk and actually wrecking the vehicles in doing that," says Brian Donovan the City Manager for East Grand Rapids.
The United Way says they have been flooded with calls from people who need help shoveling.
