I'm getting numerous calls from Beiseker residents concerned about the letters they are receiving, regarding removal of ice from their sidewalks. The Village is threatening them with a $250 fine if they ignore the ice and snow buildup on their front sidewalk.
I once again assure you that we just want compliance. If you get a letter, please phone our Municipal Enforcement Officer Donna (her number is on the letter) and explain the situation to her. As long as people are trying to deal with the ice with some chipping, sand, kitty litter, or ice-melt, fines will not be issued - but you must talk it over with Donna.
Also remember that sand is available free of charge at the Public Works compound, over by the Recycle Bins.
