Enforce keeping the sidewalks in front of their businesses clean.
The downtown core has always been a bone of contention for me. This city's downtown is disgusting. Gum all over the sidewalks, dirty sidewalks, stained sidewalks, bricks missing in the sidewalks and now paving tar put in the holes left by bricks that are missing (which sticks all over our shoes). Either purchase more paver stones and put them in the places where they are missing (cheapest fix) or put concrete back down. Then make the businesses power wash their sidewalks or the city do it like in other cities. Our downtown core streets and sidewalks are disgusting. This year the city only planted one side of collier street planters with flowers????????

City by-laws only require downtown businesses to remove snow and ice. Businesses are encouraged to assist with “upkeep” but nothing requires them to do so except in the winter.
