(1) Snow to remain on the sidewalk for a period longer than the first two hours of daylight after the snow has fallen; or
(2) Ice to remain on the sidewalk for more than two hours of daylight after the ice has formed, unless the ice is covered with sand, ashes, or other suitable material to assure safe travel.
(B) No owner of property, improved or unimproved, abutting on a public sidewalk shall permit the sidewalk to deteriorate to such a condition that, because of cracks, chipping, weeds, settling, covering by dirt, or other similar occurrences, the sidewalk becomes a hazard to persons using it.
(C) The city shall not be liable to any person for loss or injury to a person or property suffered or sustained by reason of any accident on sidewalks caused by a failure of the abutting owner to maintain the sidewalk. The abutting owner shall maintain sidewalks free from the conditions described in this section and is liable for any and all injuries to persons or property arising as a result of failure to so maintain the sidewalks.
