City of Green Bay reminding residents of snow, ice removal procedures

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works (DPW) reminded residents Monday of snow and ice procedures ahead of winter weather.

Snow must be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours after snow or ice has fallen. If properties are in violation, the DPW will address it immediately without notifying owners, rents or the person in charge of the property ahead of time.

If you do not clear sidewalks within 24 hours, the city will remove the snow or ice and charge you the actual cost of work. You could also face a citation of up to $500.

Owners, renters and anyone in charge of real estate cannot take snow and ice from private property and put it onto city streets or alleys. Anyone depositing snow and ice could be fined up to $500.

Finally, the DPW reminds residents that snow emergencies can be announced at any time if the city has severe weather conditions. If so, all vehicles must be removed from city streets. If you do not move your vehicle, you could face parking citations or towing fees.
