Did You Know It’s Illegal?

The Township has been notified by the County that there have been several incidents in our area of residents plowing and depositing snow in and across the right-of-way on the road. Did you know that pushing snow across the road and/or depositing snow within the county and township road right-of-way is prohibited by Minnesota Statutes 160.2715. In addition to being illegal, this activity presents a real hazard for the public. Not only that, but any extra expense incurred by the County or Township to remove or clean up that snow can be levied to our property taxes!

Some residents have been sent the letter below, and have been warned of this in the past few weeks. We have had a lot of snow this year, and we know that spring can bring much more. Please be respectful of others and follow the rules!
