URBANA-CHAMPAIGN -- A weekend of snow means a Monday of digging out for some local businesses. Many were shoveling to avoid a fine.

Sunday, public works activated a sidewalk snow removal ordinance. It's in effect until Tuesday at 9 am. Fines will be issued to any business property owner if snow isn't removed from sidewalks by then.

An area business owner says he shoveled his sidewalk three times Monday and may shovel again at night to meet with the ordinance.
