Except as otherwise provided in this Code, it shall be unlawful for any licensee to engage in any business on the public way or to use any part of a public way for or in connection with such licensee’s business.
It shall be unlawful for any licensee to litter or to permit the accumulation of any paper, rubbish or refuse upon that portion of the public way abutting the licensed premises.
(1) It shall be the duty of each licensee under Title 4 to remove snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of the licensed premises.
Any licensee, whether individually or in cooperation with other persons or community groups, who removes snow or ice from the public sidewalk or street shall not, as a result of his acts or omissions in such removal, be liable for civil damages. Provided, however, that this subsection (c)(2) shall not apply to acts or omissions amounting to wilful or wanton misconduct in removing such snow or ice.
Upon the issuance or renewal of any license issued under Title 4, the commissioner shall provide the applicant or licensee, as applicable, with information about the provisions of this Code regarding the applicant’s or licensee’s responsibility for maintaining the public way abutting each business.
