City snow/ice removal would be nice

Homeowners who didn’t shovel had already gotten tickets when ice from weeks before still covered some local crosswalks like those at the Hennigan School until about a week ago. Who deserves a ticket for not clearing city property? Can the city ticket itself?

When it’s extremely cold, as it was recently, it takes a long time for “ice rinks” from storms to melt. I have seen contractors use a machine that melts street tar. Maybe that would work. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
