Dear PoP – Non-snow Sidewalk of Shame nominee

“Dear PoP,

The bushes on this portion of 17th street between Florida and V St NW hang over approximately 2/3 of what is otherwise a nice, wide sidewalk. This leaves only a very narrow passing lane that gets difficult in the mornings with dog-owners and commuters often getting tangled. I can’t remember them ever being pruned back. The owners must be obligated to keep the sidewalk clear, right? Do you or your readers know anything about this home or what recourse is available?”

Yup the business/home owner is responsible for keeping it clear. I believe fines are given after a warning. Anyone know for sure? Anyone deal with a similar situation?
