Though the snow that's on the way is supposed to be wet, and less likely to stick a lot to sidewalks, chances are a lot of it will still have to removed. Here's everything you need to know about how to find out when it'll be removed by you, or where to complain if removal doesn't happen. We'll be updating this with more information today.
