§ 90.02  CLEARING OF SNOW AND ICE FROM SIDEWALKS.
 
   (A)   The occupant of any premises, specified in the area in division (D) below, and the owner of any unoccupied premises in the area, are required to keep the sidewalks in front of or adjacent to the premises cleared, so far as is practicable and reasonable, from snow and ice in order to facilitate pedestrian use of the sidewalks. The word “occupant,” as used in this section, shall be deemed to mean the person occupying for business, residence, or other purposes the first floor of any building situated on the premises so occupied; and if the first floor of any building is not occupied, then premises shall be deemed and held to be unoccupied and the owner or lessee of the entire premises shall be required to keep the sidewalks in front of or adjacent to the premises reasonably cleared from snow and ice.
   (B)   In case snow or ice is accumulated or fallen on any sidewalk or is continuing to fall after 7:00 p.m. it shall be removed, if practical to do so, or a sufficient path be cleared by the occupant or owner of the real estate upon which the sidewalk is located before 9:00 a.m. of the following day. If any snow or ice has fallen or accumulated on any sidewalk after 9:00 a.m., it shall be removed or a path cleared by the occupant or owner of the real estate upon which the snow or ice has fallen or accumulated by 7:00 p.m. of such day, if the snow has ceased to fall by that time. In either of the foregoing events, the occupant or owner shall be deemed to be held and held to have complied with the provisions of this section.
   (C)   Each 24 hour period shall be treated separately for consideration of whether or not this section has been violated, and therefore separate violations may occur in separate 24 hour periods.
   (D)   This section shall apply to all areas zoned “central business.”
