OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha's City Council is looking at a new plan for the penalty for those who wait too long to shovel sidewalks after it snows.

Right now, city code gives residents 24 hours after the major streets are plowed to clear sidewalks.

A new plan would charge less if the deadline is missed--costing the average homeowner $240--less than half of what many paid last year.
