The Leavenworth Times - Leavenworth, KS
  • Letter: Enforce city sidewalk rules

  • This is in reference to the many sidewalks that are not being cleared in the city. I have seen numerous articles in the Leavenworth Times stating that the sidewalks are the home/business owner's responsibilities to clear within 24 hours of the snowfall.

    This is in reference to the many sidewalks that are not being cleared in the city. I have seen numerous articles in the Leavenworth Times stating that the sidewalks are the home/business owner's responsibilities to clear within 24 hours of the snowfall.
    The city of Leavenworth has worked very hard and invested a huge amount of money in the sidewalk system in this city so that the school children/teenagers have sidewalks to walk on when going to or from school rather than walking in the street. These sidewalks are also used by other pedestrians and exercisers. It defeats the purpose of providing the sidewalks if they are not cleared and are covered with either snow or ice which makes it difficult if not an actual liability to walk on them. I think there needed to be more effort to enforce the sidewalk ruling especially along the school routes and main walking routes in town.
    Thank you for allowing me to vent my frustration.
