Make way for pedestrians

As a walker, I take exception to the local businesses that do not clean off the public sidewalks in front of their business. There are two on Belknap that I have asked to clear their sidewalks of plowed snow and neither has done so. This was right after the snowfall on Feb. 12, and the problem has not been corrected.

They include a business near the corner of Hammond Avenue and Belknap Street, and one mid-block between Grand and Baxter avenues. Private drivers clear the business walks right onto the public sidewalk in front of the next business and leave it there for us walkers to try and climb over.

There are still some people in town who walk wherever they have to go. I have a home and am required to keep the public sidewalk around it clean so, what gives?
