City Asks Residents to Leave Snow Plowing to the Experts

December 14, 2018 – With winter weather already upon us, the City of Midland asks residents to please leave the snow plowing to the experts!

Residents are discouraged from plowing snow on a public street for a number of reasons. City Department of Public Services (DPS) crews have the experience, equipment, safety features, and proper insurance coverage needed to safely and effectively plow the City’s streets.

Plowing snow on a public street without prior approval is a violation of Section 22-1 of the City’s Code of Ordinances and is punishable by a $500 fine and/or up to 90 days in jail.

In addition, residents are reminded to keep all shoveled, plowed, and/or blown snow from their driveways and sidewalks on their private property, not on City streets or sidewalks. When plowing or blowing snow into the outlawn area, please be sure that doing so does not create a vision obstruction. Plowing snow into or pushing snow across a public roadway violates Section 257.677a(4) of the Michigan Vehicle Code and presents a safety hazard to motorists – including you!

For more information on the City’s snow removal response, visit www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/snowremoval or call DPS at 989-837-6900. Residents can receive snow team updates during weather events by following the City of Midland on Facebook at www.facebook.com/cityofmidlandmi or on Twitter at @CityofMidlandMI.
