Snow and ice must be removed from all sidewalks and walkways in the city of Menomonie to the full width of the sidewalk or walkway no later than noon on the day following the end of the snowfall, according to the city.
All snow, including ice, needs to be removed.
Property owners and tenants who fail to remove snow andice may be cited for no more than $100 for the first offense, plus the cost of prosecution, according to the city.
If city crews are needed to remove the snow and ice, the expenses will be in addition to the citation charge—$75 for a single sidewalk, and $100 for a corner lot. The amount will be invoiced to the property owner.
Unpaid charges will become a lien against the property and collected on the tax roll.
Tenants should check their lease agreements to see if they are responsible for snow and ice removal. If people are leaving town, they should make arrangements for the maintenance.
