Property owners are required to clean and sweep the sidewalks next to their property, including 18 inches from the curb into the street.
The Department of Sanitation can only issue a violation if the condition exists during an address's specific enforcement routing time.
If the condition doesn't exist at the time of inspection, no violations can be issued.
What Happens Next
The Department of Sanitation will inspect the location in 3 to 7 business days. They may issue a summons, but they will not remove the debris.
