According to the Town of Herndon website, the Herndon Department of Public Works does not remove snow from residential or business sidewalks except to facilitate pedestrian travel on select major routes and schools. “Be a good neighbor and clear sidewalks adjacent to your business or home,” states the town website. “Please do not shovel snow into the streets or block storm drains or fire hydrants. Consider offering assistance to elderly or infirm neighbors.”
