Shoveling resources for the elderly and disabled

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (KGWN) - Shoveling sidewalks can be difficult for the elderly or disabled.

Cheyenne City Councilman Richard Johnson says he received a message from someone who was in a wheelchair who couldn't shovel sidewalks. The person was receiving citations for not clearing the walks. After researching programs for snow removal for the elderly and disabled and finding none, that sparked an idea.

Johnson has created a Facebook group "Snow Removal For Those Unable Not Unwilling." The way it works is Johnson is asking people to tag themselves in the group saying I can shovel and when. Then someone who needs their sidewalks shoveled can message that individual.

If you don't have Facebook you can also email rjohnson@cheyennecity.org
