Never buy a house with public sidewalks. Its your responsibility to clear, maintain, repair etc. The liability is yours also. You cannot repair them yourself and have to pay a contractor in most cases. Not a good selling point if you think it though not to mention the pedestrian traffic. If you cant live without the property beat them up on the price, inspect the walks, buy a John Deere, and hope it doesn't snow.

During the Columbus day Parade I noticed that no one honored the American Flag as it passed by. I didn't see anyone stand, remove their hats,and salute the colors as they passed by. Has all respect for America disappeared ? Have people forgotten what those colors stand for ?
Veterans Day is coming up soon,and I will be interested to see how many people will honor those colors and the proud Veterans that carry them. The American Flags will line the streets in Westerly and Pawcatuck on Friday,Nov. 11th & Sat,Nov. 12th to honor America and all those proud Veterans,living and deceased, who sacrificed all,For You !!

Why cant you put a toll on your sidewalk like they do the roads. People will pay for anything. Think about the roads and fuel taxes paid. Why not put a gate across our sidewalks and make money
