ROOSEVELT PARK, Mich. (WZZM) -- The snow has stopped falling, leaving behind sidewalks covered with deep snow. While one lakeshore community tells its residents not to worry about the snow, another requires its residents to clear the snow.
In Roosevelt Park, city workers clear sidewalks for residents. "We just purchased a new trackless side walk plow last year," said city manager Anthony Chandler. "We can get through the entire city in one day."
City leaders believe the service is important to continue. "This is a service that they have been doing here for a long time and I do not see any end to it in the near future," said Chandler.
But in Muskegon the work is the responsibility of residents.
William Oakes shoveled his side walk early Thursday morning, but around the city, many sidewalks are still covered in deep snow.
"Some people do not shovel and you have to walk into the street," explained Oakes.
