There should be no more confusion on who is responsible for sidewalk snow/ice removal at businesses and the penalty incurred for being non-compliance.
Jason Clark, owner of BIN112 and Strip Club 104 A Steak House, on Trade and Poinsett streets, respectively summed it up in laymen terms. “The city’s responsibility is to clear the road so emergency vehicles can get out first and then the public.

Greer City Council didn't have to spend much time on hearing downtown merchants complaining about the city's snow and ice cleanup last weekend.

Snow and ice removal from downtown streets was the hottest topic at the Stomping Grounds Saturday night. And it continued Monday.
About 50 people from nearby neighborhoods and downtown businesses and apartments gathered Saturday at the Stomping Grounds coffee and wine shop as it was virtually the only business open.
Most churches have cancelled or curtailed services Sunday as roads in the upstate remained icy overnight from snow and ice that fell across greater Greer this weekend.
