Preparing for the winter season
The winter season is upon us and as Wisconsin Rapids property owners we need to do our due diligence by clearing clearing snow and ice from sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowfall.
The Public Works Department provides sand barrels at various locations around the city to help with ice and snow. Residents may use the sand on their sidewalks if the ice cannot be removed. If the snow isn’t removed City crews will clear the walk when time allows and will charge the property owner a substantial amount for use of labor and equipment. Also, please when removing snow and ice from your property please don’t push or blow the snow onto city streets
We also asks that property owners remove snow from fire-hydrants adjacent to their properties as a fire safety measure and that residents be good neighbors and assist the elderly and handicapped with removal of snow from their sidewalks.
The City of Wisconsin Rapids policy in regards to snow removal from local streets is when snow accumulation reaches four inches or more, lessor amounts may be removed upon decision of supervisory personnel.
