It seems that every winter the discussion of clearing sidewalks comes up in places that get snow. Some get all angry if the sidewalks are not cleared 24/7... even if it is still snowing. Because of the cold weather, the city has suspended enforcement on sidewalks. Which I agree with... but those who walk everywhere seem to be upset with that idea. Keep in mind we have had snow for 4 days now... and regulations say 'within 24 hours' of a snowfall. Since the snowfall has not needed, my guess is that 24 hour clock has not started.
What are your thoughts on clearing sidewalks? Should the home owner clear them, should renters clear them, should landlords clear them, or should the City clear them?
Personally, I think it should be the responsibility of the homeowner/property owner... but I don't think that renters should wait for the landlord to show up if they want it cleared sooner than 24 hours.
*Side note, it took me an hour to clear my sidewalks this afternoon... and I have been out there every day except yesterday. The only reason I did not go out yesterday was because it was too cold out.
