Snow Plowing Update

Do you wanna build a snowman? 

Well, you might, but that’s not exactly what this post is about. LOL!

As you know, there has been a lot of snow. Please know that our Public Works Department is doing their best to plow efficiently and safely in the Town of Delavan. That being said, here is a reminder of our Town Ordinance #229 (4.17.2001), which highlights the placement of snow.

1) No person shall place, deposit, dump, push, or cause to be placed, deposited, dumped, or pushed any snow or ice upon any PUBLIC ROADWAY, or upon any PRIVATE PROPERTY without prior consent of the owner.

2) No person shall place, deposit, dump, push, or cause to be placed, deposited, dumped, or pushed, any snow or ice upon any public roadway RIGHT OF WAY.

So as to restrict or obstruct traffic or restrict or obstruct vision along and upon any portion such roadway, or approaches thereto; or so as to interfere with drainage of the road or ditch maintinence operations, including snow removal.

Thank you! Be safe!
