The snow in northeast Kansas has mostly stopped, so now it’s time to start thinking about shoveling your sidewalks.

KSNT News looked up rules for some of our local towns.

  • Topeka: You must have your sidewalks shoveled 48 hours after the snow event.
  • Manhattan: You must have your sidewalks shoveled 36 hours after the snow event.
  • Emporia: You must have your sidewalks shoveled 5 hours after the snow event. If the snow happened overnight, you have 5 hours after sunrise.

If you live in Manhattan and physically can’t shovel the snow yourself, the Flint Hills Volunteer Center has a program that you can sign up for called Neighbors Helping Neighbors. If you want to volunteer to help, you can sign up there as well or call (785) 776-7787.

We did not find any time rules for Junction City. However, people are responsible for their own sidewalks.
