LEARNING BLACK HISTORY

Students living in the dorms
and off-campus apartments
should be thankful next time
they walk outside to find their
sidewalks in front of their build-
ings coated in snow and ice.
Although sidewalks lining
the streets that run throughout
Ann Arbor are public property,
the city government requires
its residents to make sure that
the sidewalks in front of their
homes free of ice and snow at all
times.
If they don't, they could be
cited by the city and face a fine
,/of up to $1,000.
City Councilman Leigh Gre-
den (D-Ward 3) said citizens
are required to clear off their
own sidewalks because the city
does't have the money to do the
job itself.

Greden said property taxes
would have to be raised to cover
the cost, which would likely
anger Ann Arbor citizens who
think property taxes are already
high enough.
He added that there hasn't
been enough of a demand coming
from residents to justify shifting
the responsibility to the city.
Disabled or older residents
who might struggle to clear off
their own sidewalks can receive
help from their neighbors in
order to avoid getting fined, Gre-
den said.
In order to help residents, the
city also distributes free salt and
sand from a city dispensary on
Main Street.
The city is also lenient with
its fines, Greden said. Residents
are first given a warning and are

only fined after repeated viola-
tions.
Kinesiology senior Mike Beel-
Bates said his landlord does all
of the shoveling in front of his
apartment complex, which he
says is comes included in his
monthly rent..
And although students liv-
ing in houses are supposed to
clear off their own sidewalks,
Beel-Bates said he'd never seen
a single student do so in his four
years at the University.
School of Music junior Brant
Cox, however, thinks the requir-
ing residents to clear their own
sidewalks is ludicrous.
"If we can't drink beer on a
sidewalk during tailgating, why
do we have to be accountable for
snow?" he said.
