Hi there Sloop!
The first snow fall of the season came today, and with my joy for snow comes my animosity for the vacant and parking lot owners who do not maintain their sidewalks. The walkways around Clark, Polk, and Financial Place are very slippery! The condos and businesses take care of their sidewalks, but the lot owners do not, making it impossible to safely walk up the street. The vacant lot next to the Amlie building on Clark is the worst offender! What can we do to get these people to take care of their properties during the winter? I've tried contacting the Alderman, but that process is just too slow and ineffective. Help!
This might be a tough one to enforcement, but we agree that the Alderman is the best option. Does anyone else have any suggestions? If you want to help push the issue, it might be good to have some other residents email the Alderman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Hat Tip: BS!)
