Newton Aldermen will be discussing the snow shoveling ordinance in both Public Safety and Public Facilities committee meetings this week, with an eye on extending the two-year trial period, which is scheduled to expire on Nov. 1, 2013.

Melanie Graham from Patch has more here.

What do you think? Should the trial be extended? Should we move onto making the rules permanent? Should we scrap them altogether?

And for that matter, how did you and your neighbors do in terms of cleaning their sidewalks during last month’s storm?
