City hall update: Fine for unshoveled sidwalks?

City considering $75 fine for un-shoveled sidewalks

On average, a property owner who failed to shovel snow from his or her sidewalk within a week of a snowfall last winter paid about $240 to have the city remove the snow.

Now, the city’s Department of Public Works is proposing a $75 administrative citation on top of any snow removal costs assessed to a property with un-shoveled sidewalks.

The proposal drew the ire of Council Member Elizabeth Glidden (Ward 8), who said the citation is punishing homeowners twice for one offense.
