Southold Supervisor Scott Russell put out a call Thursday for shopkeepers and residents with sidewalks running past their properties to take steps to keep the walkways free of ice and snow.

“Please be courteous to your fellow neighbors and friends,” the supervisor said in a release. “Sidewalks must be cleared for the general public’s safety.”

He added that snow should not be shoveled into the roadway.

About 14 inches of snow fell across Southold during the weekend blizzard. At times it mixed with rain and freezing rain making the accumulations particuarly wet, heavy and difficult to move.
