 Snow & Ice Removal

IN TIMES OF SNOWFALL, all sidewalks shall be cleared by the property owner (full width and length) upon whose land said sidewalk abuts within 24 hours of the sidewalk becoming snow covered to a depth of at least one inch, or sprinkled with ashes, sawdust or sand if it becomes ice covered.  All non-compliant property owners will be issued an ordinance violation citation, and, the Village shall cause all sidewalks which have not been cleared of snow and ice as required by this subsection to be cleared.  When snow or ice removal is performed by Village personnel, the property owner shall be assessed a minimum of $50.00.  If the actual cost of such snow or ice removal exceeds $50.00, the assessed charge will be calculated as follows:  hourly pay rate plus cost of fringe benefits of each employee involved in the removal plus the number of employees involved times the length of time involved plus the cost of any equipment involved in the removal.  (The cost of such equipment is determined by reference to the State of Wisconsin Maintenance Manual Exhibit 5.55).  Such charges levied in accordance with the above shall be a debt due to the approving authority and shall be a lien upon the property.  If this debt is not paid by the 10th of the month following the billing day, a one-percent charge per month shall be added to the delinquent bill.  Thereafter, if payment is not received prior to November 15th of the current year, the delinquent bill will be placed on the succeeding tax roll.
