Per Village Code:
All snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction upon any public sidewalk in the Village of Sidney shall be removed by the owner or occupant of the adjoining land as soon as practicable after such snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction is deposited thereon. Whenever the owner or occupant of adjoining premises fails to remove the snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction from the sidewalk in front of such premises so owned or occupied by him or her within 10 hours from the time when such snow, ice or other obstruction shall have been deposited thereon, or within one hour after notice of the Superintendent of Public Works to remove the same, it shall be the duty of the Superintendent of Public Works to cause to be removed said snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction from such sidewalk and the sidewalk to be cleaned. The Superintendent of Public Works shall certify the cost thereof, together with a charge of 50% thereon to cover costs of administration and supervision, to the Village Clerk, who shall present a bill to the owner for the expenses incurred thereby. If the owner shall fail to pay such bill within 30 days, the Village Clerk shall report the same to the Board of Trustees, and the amount thereof shall be levied, enforced and collected in the same manner, by the same proceedings, at the same time, with the same penalties and having the same lien upon the property as general Village taxes.
