Any accumulation of two or more inches of snow shall be considered sufficient to impair or impede free passage. Such accumulation must be removed within 12 hours of the cessation of snowfall; however, if snowfall ends between 6:00 p.m. and sunrise, the snow must be removed within 12 hours of sunrise.
