Here it is the homeowner's responsibility, though the sidewalk is public obviously.

As someone who would rather walk most places than drive, ppl who don't shovel are trash & should be launched into the sun.
When we bought our city house, we learned that the city has a 15' easement from the curb towards the yard. I can't plant or build anything in that 15'. If it ever snows here, I won't be cleaning snow off of that 15'.

When I lived in Toronto, I actually had a postal manager come to the door, and inform me that our postal "person" would no longer come to the side of the house and deliver our mail to the slot, due to having to squeeze by the 4 cars in the narrow driveway. They suggested that I go buy a mailbox, and attach it to the tree in the front yard. Yet the rest of the year they had no issue walking across the lawn, as evident by the paths that were made constantly. Of course, walking up the empty driveway and sidewalk next to ours, and then stepping across two feet of snow or grass was also forbidden?
On the plus side, the city plowed both the street, and sidewalk, in every storm. Of course they also salt the ever loving hell out of the roads. Good for keeping traffic flow with morons that cant buy decent tires or learn how to drive, horrible for the cars on said roads.

Where is your home that you can rely on the municipal authorities to clear your sidewalk?

You'd better be sure you're right about that. If you're wrong, it could have consequences.

It's not applicable to me because we don't have sidewalks. But the city handles those that do.

Our roads in my neighborhood are 3 lanes wide. Plenty of room for kids to play and folks to walk without impeding traffic.

He's wrong but it doesn't matter, he lives in the deep south. Why he's commenting in a snow thread is unknown.
