Boston Mayor fines an Elderly Man for not shoveling sidewalk…in a state of Emergency Snow Storm.
The elderly man was out of town attending a funeral.
In a state of an emergency with snow fall where do people throw the snow. The people are not allowed to throw the snow in the street, on someone else property… What to do with the snow?
The city should run snow removal as a Suburban fall or spring cleanup. Notify the people that city will be through to collect the snow and remove it from the area. The city in a state of an Emergency should look for and recruit volunteers for snow removal (After all Massachusetts does an annual census collect information about able body people that are willing to volunteer in Emergencies).
Property taxes in Boston is about $16.00 per square foot…
Some cities in New York State have property taxes at $0.80 per square foot… Where is the money going Boston???
Maybe the city does have the money to clean snow from the sidewalks and streets…
