(A) Every person in charge or control of any building or lot of land within the city fronting or abutting on a paved sidewalk, whether as owner, tenant, occupant, lessee or otherwise, shall remove and clear away, or cause to be removed and cleared away, snow and ice from a path or at least 36 inches in width, from so much of said sidewalk as is in front of or abuts on said building or lot of land.
(1) Except as provided in division (B) below, snow and ice shall be so removed from sidewalks in all business districts within the city within 24 hours after the cessation of all fall of snow, sleet or freezing rain.
(2) Except as provided in division (B) below, snow and ice shall be so removed from all other sidewalks within the city on the same day of the cessation of any fall of snow, sleet or freezing rain within the first six hours of daylight after the cessation of any such fall, whichever period is longer.
(B) However, in the event snow and ice on a sidewalk has become so hard that it cannot be removed without the likelihood of damage to the sidewalk, the person or entity charged with its removal shall, within the time mentioned in division (A) above, cause enough sand or other abrasive to be put on the sidewalk to make travel thereon reasonably safe; and shall then, as soon thereafter as weather permits, cause a path in said sidewalk of at least 36 inches in width to be thoroughly cleaned.
