Legal Notice The City of Kimball would like to remind all snow removal oper- ators and property owners that it is unlawful to deposit snow on or next to a public highway or street. Minnesota law prohibits the plow- ing, blowing, shoveling or other- wise placing of snow onto public roadways. This includes the ditch and right of way area along the roadside. This would also include push- ing the snow from your driveway across the street onto the right-of- way of a vacant lot. The snow from your property needs to remain on your property. According to state law, viola- tions are considered misdemean- ors, but civil penalties also apply if the placement of snow creates a hazard such as a slippery area, frozen rut or bump that contrib- utes to a motor vehicle or pedes- trian crash. The civil liability can extend to both the property owner and the person who placed the snow. Other hazards created by improper placement of snow on or near a public roadway include drainage problems, drifting, sight obstruction and safe accessibility. Special attention should be made to keep crosswalks, intersections, entrances and exits clean and unobstructed. Also remember per City Ordi- nance all sidewalks must be cleared of snow and ice within 24 hours after the precipitation has ceased to fall. If your side- walk is not cleared within 24 hours the City is authorized to start the emergency abatement process. We appreciate your coopera- tion in this matter.
