    L&I property remains unshoveled despite city’s three-foot rule

    NewsWorks contributor Bob Shipman sends this report from the Northwest, along with a photo of a messy, snowy sidewalk out front of a Licenses & Inspections office:

    “One of the law enforcers for the City of Philadelphia does not even comply with the law. [L&I] has not shoveled the path for the residents in front of the Northern Division office located in the 200-block of east Rittenhouse streets near the corner of Bayton and Rittenhouse. This street coupled with the PHA Morton homes has created a terrible section with major pedestrian traffic, Germantown High School, churches and housing complexes. Come on Philly.”

     

    Lizz Fiedler is following up on this in an ongoing effort to reach out PHA  about its snow-removal practices.
