WHITEWATER — The Whitewater Common Council 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.
