Town Snow Plowing Notice

Town​ ​of​ ​Flambeau

Anyone who plows snow from their driveway out into the town road right of way will receive a warning from the town to remove the snow from the road. If the snow is not removed the property owner will be referred to the Sheriff’s department for violation of the state law: Wisconsin state statute 346.94(5) “No person may place or cause to be placed upon any highway any substance that is or may be injurious to any vehicle.” And 346.95(3) “Any person violating 346.94(5) shall be required to forfeit $50 for each offense.” Also, Wisconsin state statute 86.022 makes it a misdemeanor punishable by fine to place any obstruction in a road ditch. Compacted snow that will not allow drainage is considered an obstruction.
