City of Waterloo Municipal Code §324-6 says the owner, occupant or person in charge of every building, lot or part of a lot within the City fronting upon a public sidewalk shall remove all snow and ice from said sidewalk within 24 hours from the time the snow ceases to fall. When ice is formed on the sidewalk so that it cannot be removed, it shall be kept sprinkled with ashes, salt or like material.
If snow or ice is not removed from sidewalks or sprinkled as required above, the City may remove or cause to be removed all such snow or ice. The person in charge of the premises from which the snow or ice was removed shall be charged for the City cost of such removal. If not paid within 30 days of the invoice, such charge shall be placed on the tax roll, pursuant to Wisconsin State Statute 66.0627. The cost for snow removal is charged according to the City of Waterloo Fee Schedule.
Questions should be directed to the Department of Public Works.
Thank you for keeping sidewalks safe during winter months.
