City of Chicago: Shovel your sidewalk or get ticketed $50
We haven’t gotten much snow this winter, and that could save you money if you don’t want to shovel.
The city of Chicago has been cracking down since the start of the year on people or businesses that aren’t shoveling their sidewalks.
DNA info reports that a city ordinance requires sidewalks cleared or else you face a fine.
For homeowners it’s $50.
Businesses can be fined up to a $1,000 each day.
The city received about 800 shoveling complaints through January 16.
They issued 57 tickets.
