Mr. Stopper, unfortunately it is not the Mayor's or the city employees job to shovel your steps for you. I don't believe they plow alleys either. You may have to do as many people do and pay someone to do it for you. If you rent maybe your landlord could help you with that.

I understand that you ae frustrated, but I would not turn my well-being over to the government except as a last resort. Why sell yourself into slavery if you have any other recourse.

If your building is greater than 2 units the safety of your steps is your landlord's responsibility. A single home or 1/2 double is yours. I don't think the city plows alleys.

spike..the city does plow secondary streets and alleys, but only when the main streets, bus routes, and ambulance routes are done first.

That's good to know. Thanks BornHere. The nursing home near our house does the alley.

Well, when it comes to the Alley's, it should be the city's responsibility because it IS the city's responsibility to fix the alleys. As far as the steps, unfortunately the best advice i can give is to keep a bucket of ice melt on your back porch or inside your door or something. Ice Melt works pretty well and pretty quickly.
