I was asked a question about do I have to shovel my sidewalk after a snow. I looked into this and this is what I found. I thought I would share this . I have to say that I never heard of anyone getting a fine for not having it removed

After any fall of snow, owners, managers, agents or occupiers of any premises shall cause the snow to be immediately removed from the improved area of the sidewalk in the public street adjacent to such premises, and the improved area of the sidewalk shall also be kept clear of ice at all times. If no part of the sidewalk area be improved, then a lane five feet wide in the sidewalk area shall be kept free from snow and ice at all times. Where structures contain six or more units, it shall be the duty of the owner or agent of the owner to comply with this provision. Where structures contain between one or six units, it shall be the duty of the person occupying the units nearest the public street, as well as the owner or agent of the owner, involved to comply with the requirements of this section.

REMINDER:         NOM CASE/ Hassen Mohammed

                               Sentencing set for Friday, December 16 at 9am

                               Division 16, Circuit Court (Market and 12th Streets)

 

Vince Stehlin, our Neighborhood Ownership Model Police Liaison, reminds everyone that the Lindenwood, Southampton and Northampton(Tilles Park and Kingshighway Hills)  Court Advocacy Teams have been following a case involving Hassen Mohammad.  Mr. Mohammad was arrested in May of 2015 for multiple burglaries in these neighborhoods and the court advocacy groups submitted impact letters, attended bond hearings and eventually attended his sentencing.

 

At the sentencing, it was discovered that as a result of some maneuvering by his attorney, Mr. Mohammad was able to get a judge to grant him drug court for his crimes before his sentencing in Division 16.

 

Judge Mullen offered jail time instead of his four year drug court sentence with the condition that if he failed drug court and returned to his court, he would receive a more appropriate sentence.  Mr. Mohammad subsequently failed a recent drug test and capias warrants were issued on him for his arrest.  On 10/28/16, Mr.Mohammad was taken into custody by 1st district burglary crew detectives in the 4100 block of Taft.

Officer Stehlin spoke with Assistant Circuit Attorney, Patrick Hamacher, who has advised the case is currently scheduled for sentencing on 12/16/16 at 9am  in Division 16, Circuit Court (Market St. and Tucker).  Officer Stehlin will attend and urges interested citizens in Lindenwood, Southampton and Northhampton (Tilles Park and Kingshighway Hills) to attend as well.  The presiding judge definitely notices when concerned citizens attend bond hearings and sentencing hearings. Please consider attending.
