New bylaw could force businesses downtown to clean up

Downtown residents and store owners could soon be held responsible for the cleanliness of sidewalks in front of their houses and businesses. The Ville-Marie city council has proposed a bylaw that would allow inspectors to fine citizens who do not keep the front of their property clean.

The bylaw stipulates that penalties of $125 to $4,000 would be imposed on citizens who don’t clean the sidewalk facing their property, including a 60-centimetre portion into the street.
