Snow Removal Downtown - Wednesday, February 13, 2019

The Public Works Department and Green County Highway Department will be clearing the snow from the parking areas in the downtown tomorrow morning between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m.  Thank yuo for your cooperation in helping to get the streets and sidewalks cleared of snow!  Think Spring!!

Safety - As the plow drivers work hard to keep our streets clear, they are asking for residents to avoid crowding the plows and slow down to allow for the snow removal. Please keep cars off the streets as much as possible so the plows can clear the streets.  A special request for those of you with children, please keep them from playing near edge of the streets. While those snow banks can be a lot of fun, they can also be a dangerous place to play.

Sidewalk Snow Removal

With the current snow conditions, the owner or occupant of any property which fronts upon or abuts any public sidewalk or hydrant is responsible for the removal of any snow and/or ice that accumulates on the sidewalk or hydrant. Pursuant to Section 262-7 of the Municipal Code of the Village of New Glarus, residents are required to clear snow and/or ice within twenty-four (24) hours from the time the snow ceases to accumulate.  Sidewalks are to be kept clear of snow and ice to a minimum of four (4) feet in width.

In the event that the removal of ice is impossible, the property owner or occupant is required to use sand and/or salt to prevent the ice from being dangerous.
