This is what I see when I look down out of our bedroom window:
I see a lovely clean public sidewalk infront of our property and a nicely cleared path for us and the mailman to get to our door. I see that our neighbours, on both sides, are slack!! And yes, they are all at home ….. This is all ice.
to remove snow from the sidewalks abutting their space within 8 hours of
the end of the snowfall. The DC Official Code also states that if the
property owner does not remove the snow, the District will remove the
snow and sue the owner, through the Office of the Corporation Counsel,
for costs of snow removal and a $25 fine.
I guess $25 doesn't scare anyone! But the thought of someone suing if they fall certainly scares me!
