Village of McFarland, WI

Your Help is Needed!

 

Do Not Blow Snow Into the Streets:  It is a violation of Village ordinances to plow, blow, or shovel snow into Village streets.  This can cause a serious hazard for pedestrians and motorists, especially when it is done after the Public Works crew has already plowed the street.

Sidewalk Snow and Ice Removal:  Residents are reminded that snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours from the time snow ceases to accumulate.  Residents must also keep sidewalks sprinked with sand and/or salt to permit safe travel by pedestrians.  Citations will be issued for violations of this ordinance.

The Village encourages residents to clear snow from around fire hydrants and mailboxes.  Members of both the Fire Department and the Post Office appreciate your help!

Adopt a Fire Hydrant:  With the heavy snowfalls we often experience in winter, many fire hydrants may become partially blocked by snow.  If you have a fire hydrant in your yard, the Fire Department would greatly appreciate your assistance in clearing snow from the immediate area.  A few minutes of shoveling now could make a big difference if a house in your neighborhood should catch on fire.
