I’m a senior citizen who walks everywhere and I don’t own a car. When it snows, as it did last week, the sidewalks, driveways, and curb cuts are not shoveled and quickly become hard and icy. Along Oak Park Avenue, Lake Street, Madison Street, any empty storefront or home is not shoveled. It becomes difficult to walk with the ice. Is there a way the village could try to keep the main street sidewalks clear? Develop a program to shovel the curbs and the sidewalks of properties not cleared by owners? 

I ended up walking the bike path on the street this week down Madison. It was clear, unlike parts of the sidewalks.
