This bill would require each municipality to establish a volunteer program for the free removal of snow and ice from the entrance ways, driveways, and abutting sidewalks of residential properties in the municipality that are occupied by seniors and disabled persons. The bill would provide an avenue for seniors and disabled persons to connect with volunteers in their communities who can help clear out any snow and ice so that seniors and disabled persons may safely enter and exit their homes and carry on their usual activities in the aftermath of severe winter weather. The bill requires each municipality to appoint a coordinator to administer the volunteer program. The coordinator would recruit volunteers to conduct the snow and ice removal under the program. The volunteers and the municipality would generally be immune from suit for snow and ice removal under the program. The municipality would be required to post information about the volunteer program on its Internet website, if any exists, and in appropriate community notices, newsletters, or other communications made to municipal residents, if any exist. The municipality would also be required to share information about the program with the local schools to share with their student bodies, as students may provide a good source of volunteers. It is the intention of the sponsor that this bill establish a purely volunteer program, not a municipal or governmental entity, that does not incur any costs to the municipality or to the recipients of its snow and ice removal services.
