CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - It's been over two weeks since the storm that dumped about five inches of snow on the Cedar Rapids area. Yet, in many neighborhoods there are sidewalks that still aren't cleared.

Complaints are now piling up at the city's public works department. The city says they've cited around 200 sidewalks that haven't been cleared.

City Ordinance states residents are supposed to have their shovels out within 48 hours of a storm. Public works are urging residents to take action, before they get hit with a fine of as much as $200.

If would like to report a sidewalk in your neighborhood that hasn't been properly cleared you can call the city's public works department at 286-5802 or email street@cedar-rapids.org.
