(a)   It shall be the duty of the owner or occupant of any parcel of land in the City abutting on a public street where a sidewalk has been constructed to keep such sidewalk, including curb ramps free of accumulations of rubbish, mud, ice or snow.  The owner or occupant shall remove snow and ice from sidewalks and curb ramps abutting their respective premises within four (4) hours of daylight after any snowfall or accumulation of ice occurs in order to give safe passage to all persons.
   (b)   The Director of Service shall issue snow and ice removal notices to owners or occupants of real estate whose sidewalks are in violation of the provisions of this section.  Such notice to clean sidewalks and curb ramps shall require such work to be accomplished within twenty-four (24) hours from the date of such notice.
   (c)   In the event an owner or occupant fails to properly remove ice and snow from the sidewalks and curb ramps abutting his property after receiving a subsection (b) notice from the Director of Service, the City may undertake the removal of the snow and ice.  In such event, the cost to the City of such removal shall be billed to the owner of the premises.  Unless paid within thirty (30) days of the receipt, such cost shall be charged against the real estate upon which the sidewalk is located and shall be a lien upon such real estate.
