The Blade reported this today; Snow hinders pedestrians Sidewalk owners ignoring 24-hour clearing rule.
And what the article fails to address and report is this;
"719.08. Location and maintenance of benches; specifications.
(d) No bench shall be maintained in any alley nor at any location where the distance from the face of the curb to the property line is less than ten feet unless the Commissioner of Building Inspection and Code Enforcement in his written approval of the application finds that to maintain a bench at such location is in the public interest. Each such courtesy bench shall be installed parallel to the curb and set back approximately eighteen inches from the face of the curb except as may be otherwise permitted by the Commissioner of Building Inspection and Code Enforcement and each bench shall further conform with the requirements established by such Commissioner with all respect to safety. Benches shall be kept at all times in a neat, clean and usable condition and ice and snow shall be removed from the benches and the vicinity thereof in such manner that each bench shall be accessible at all times."
And there is all its glory is a bus stop buried in snow.
