New Policy For Safe Sidewalks & Snow Removal
Also, and perhaps most significant, in the past the fines did not always accomplish the goal of getting the sidewalk cleared, leaving the situation still dangerous for children walking to school and for other pedestrians. (Perhaps some property owners found it more convenient to pay the fine than to get the work done. Maybe they didn't pay the fine.) But under the new ordinance, the City may hire someone to remove the snow and bill the property owner for the job, then place a lien on the property if the bill is not paid.
Below is the actual text of the ordinance. It's another step toward safer walking conditions--in other words, Complete Streets--in Middletown!
