Yeah right, ticketed and towed….NOT. I shoveled my driveway, moved my car off the street then cleared my porch and sidewalk by noon. Apparently many of my neighbors (residents AND businesses) feel the ordinances pertaining to removing snow from their sidewalks and moving their cars off of the streets during a snow emergency do not apply to them. Clearly there's no enforcement being done so how about at least issuing some warnings so people can be made aware that 1) It's a violation to not remove the snow from your sidewalk and 2) It's a violation to park in the street during a snow emergency. Clean, snow free streets make parking easier and properly shoveled sidewalks benefit everyone so do your part.

Mr. Richardson I agree.. In 25 years on W. Lewiston I've never seen a car towed or ticketed. At least ten cars were on the street Jan. 2. Many people on this street never shovel snow
