On the north side of Liberty in the 500 block, there are numerous s/w flags that are tilted/displaced such that they do not drain after rains, or when snow melts. When the temperature decreases enough, these 4 or 5 areas freeze, causing a dangerous hazard for pedestrians. Even when unfrozen, these ponds force pedestrians to walk on the grass.
I don't see how the property owners fronting these areas can be expected (per City Code) to clear their walks of ice, when there are 3 to 4-inch deep frozen ponds, caused by tilted sidewalks.
Since the City is now responsible for s/w repair, it falls to the City to remedy this problem. I'm sure that there are other locations where this is occurring.
