In accordance with City Ordinance 9.30, owners, renters, and persons in charge of real estate are reminded that all snow and ice must be removed from sidewalk (full width and length) within 24 hours after snow or ice has fallen. Any property found in violation will be addressed by the Department of Public Works immediately without prior notification by the City.
Failure to Clear Sidewalks
Failure to clear sidewalks within 24 hours after a storm ends will result in the City removing the snow and/or ice and charging the actual cost of the work to the property owner. In addition, anyone failing to properly remove snow and/or ice from their sidewalk may be issued a citation that could result in a fine of up to $500 for second and subsequent incidents. City of Green Bay Department of Public Works asks all residents to comply with the snow/ice ordinance to promote pedestrian safety, and eliminate the chance of invoices and citations.
For questions or reports of snow and/or ice on sidewalks, please call our office at 920-448-3535.
Do Not Deposit Snow in City Street or Alley
We would also like to remind residents of City Ordinance 9.30 that prohibits owners, renters, or persons in charge of real estate from depositing snow and ice from private property, such as parking lots, service stations, or other private property including residences, into any City street or alley. Anyone depositing snow and ice from private property into City streets or alleys may be issued a citation by the Police Department that could result in a fine of up to $500.
