Unshoveled sidewalk in Roslindale Square

For years, the city of Boston and the MBTA have disagreed on who's responsible for the stretch of sidewalk and bus stop along Belgrade Avenue below the Roslindale Village commuter-rail parking lot. So, of course, nobody ever shovels it, at least until Roslindale residents call up and annoy City Hall enough that a councilor or somebody gets Public Works to send somebody down with a shovel (calls to the MBTA are, of course, useless, since nothing annoys the T). Looks like City Hall hasn't gotten enough phone calls over the past couple of days.
