In the city of Charlottesville, it is every property owner's duty to clear off sidewalks in the event of a snow storm; that is, the city will not do it for you. We've had both snow and ice over the past two weeks, and while I would maybe not be so bothered had our walkway been the only strip of concrete left covered, the sidewalk in front of our house is slippery and treacherous, making me and my fellow house/apartment mates look like assholes. Apparently my landlord thinks he does not have to act as a reasonable and prudent human being. Last winter he at least left a shovel around so we could do it in his absence. Not this year.
Mr. Landlord, you need to tighten your shit up.
