Don't block sidewalks

Don’t block sidewalks

Hi. I am a Brainerd resident and I reside in the vicinity of South Eighth Street by the old Washington school. I am appalled at the lack of respect and poor judgment of the people who work at the school building and park along that street. The snow plows plow the snow up onto the curb and we residents or someone clear our sidewalks that go on to the street. I almost fell trying to get to a car that was picking me up because a car was blocking the sidewalk, upon my return to go back to my house I did fall because the car was still blocking access to the sidewalk. All I am asking is that some common sense is used and to not block the sidewalks.
