Dear Editor,

The article about making homeowners clear the snow off the "city" sidewalks for the tourist is just wrong! I have an elderly father in poor health on limited income and the City expects him to get out there and clear the sidewalks off or he will get a fine? Really, so what happens when he is out shoveling snow has a heart attack, or falls and breaks a hip, is the City going to pay his medical bills since he is working for the city?

If the city wants the tourist off the street then they can pay a city worker to clear off the sidewalks.

I cannot believe they expect the elderly to get out there or pay someone to do it! Shame on the city of Leavenworth!
