Title

An Ordinance to Amend Section 4.60 of Chapter 47 (Streets) of Title IV of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (ORD-21-09)

Memo

This proposed ordinance amendment would reduce the current fine from $100 to $60 for a first-time violation of an owner of the property or an occupant who fails to comply with section 4.60 regarding removal of snow and ice from sidewalks, walks, and ramps.

 

Budget/Fiscal Impact: This will impact the revenue the Police Department brings forth for violations of this ordinance. The amount of citations issues since 2017 has varied and will continue to vary due to amount of snow the City receives in any given year. The reduction of the citation price by $40 would decrease revenue.
