(A) Public sidewalks in the city which are not free of snow and ice within 24 hours after the abatement of any storm during which snow and ice may have accumulated are a public nuisance.
(B) The property owner of any lot or land abutting any public way shall clear such walks of snow and ice within 24 hours after such snow event ceases.
(C) Should any such snow and ice be found within the city, the Municipal Administrator or his or her designee may cause these sidewalks to be cleaned at the expense of the city. Thereupon, the expense of cleaning and all related costs, calculated in accordance with the formula on file with the Public Works Director, shall be billed to the property owner by regular mail. Upon failure to reimburse the city this amount within 30 days thereafter, the Council shall make written return to the County Auditor along with a request that such amount be entered upon the tax duplicate, to become a lien upon such lands from and after the date of entry, and to be collected as other taxes and returned to the city according to law.
(D) Any law enforcement officer, the Municipal Administrator, or Municipal Administrator’s designee shall be authorized to issue citations for any violation of this section.
