Frederick, Md. --- Snow and ice may be on the way! Residents are asked to watch their local weather forecast and to exercise extreme caution on roads and sidewalks due to the forecast of snow, sleet and icy conditions.

In the event the snow and ice is not removed within the time and manner, The City of Frederick’s Code Enforcement Department can issue a municipal infraction of up to $100.
