My lease agreement states Snow shoveling including sidewalks is tenants responsibility.

We had a bit of a storm where things froze over and received a notice from the city that the sidewalks need to be cleared of ice otherwise there will be a fee for them to clear it .

I advised the tenants that the fees would come to them (if not paid owner of property is responsible)
They requested salt so i reimbursed them . Now they are requesting a couple more bags for future storms... what should I do ???

Give them another bag and tell them to send you a message when they are running low.  Sounds like you got it under control.

I'd let them know that reimbursement for salt was just a courtesy. Then point out in the lease where it says they are responsible for it. Their responsibility - they pay for it.
