City of Whitewater Announces an Ordinance Amending Subsection 12.20.020

The Common Council of the City of Whitewater recently passed an ordinance which
increases the charge for removing snow and ice from sidewalks. The $50 charge has
been raised to a minimum of $100 for a first-time offense and a minimum of $150 for
subsequent offenses if the City is required to remove the snow/ice. Residents are
required to remove snow and ice from the public sidewalk, including crosswalk ramps
abutting their property, within 24 hours after a snow or ice event. Residents who do not
remove snow and ice within this timeframe, causing the City to remove the snow/ice, are
subject to these charges beginning March 1, 2020.
