Who sweeps the parking lots?

-A A +A

Has anyone noticed that after a big snowstorm, the parking lots in front of the north-facing businesses get filled with cars before anyone can sweep, or plow the parking areas? The compacted snow becomes ice and the congealed mass is there until spring, posing a serious hazard for shoppers.
Could a “Shadow Gang” of sweepers appointed by building owners, businesses, county maintenance and Chamber of Commerce be formed to deal with this problem?
Our continuing dry sunny days have lulled us into avoiding thinking about the next big dump, but if snow could be swept from the shady side of downtown businesses early in the morning while it’s light and fluffy, injuries from falls (and possible lawsuits) could be prevented.
