Oshkosh Snow Shoveling Requirements

Oshkosh Snow Shoveling Requirements

(Oshkosh, WI.) The city of Oshkosh would like to remind residents about the city’s snow removal regulations. Property owners are required to clear sidewalks abutting their property of snow or ice within 24 hours after the end of precipitation. These requirements include the crosswalk area for property owners on a corner lot.

When ice can not be removed, the property owner shall keep the sidewalk sprinkled with a material to accelerate melting and prevent slipping.

Depositing snow from private property onto any public right-of-way, public property, or fire hydrant is also prohibited.

Failure to clear the sidewalk will result in the city completing the work and billing the property owner for the snow or ice removal. The minimum charge for the cost of snow removal is $75. Property owners also face a potential citation for violation of the Municipal Code. This forfeiture is $232 for the first offense.

For more information or to report a violation, please call the Engineering Division of the Department of Public Works at (920) 236-5065.
