Manchester hits property owners with liens over snow removal

MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) — Manchester has placed liens totaling nearly $36,000 against property owners who failed to clear snow from sidewalks.

The Hartford Courant reports that the town paid a contractor to clear public walks adjoining 24 vacant homes and businesses. Assistant Town Attorney Tim O’Neil said Tuesday that officials anticipate the town will have to pay again to clear some of the same walks.

The largest lien, for $4,320, was placed on a former Main Street car dealership. The owner of record has been missing since December 2011.

Some properties slapped with liens are in foreclosure.
