SIDEWALKS AND PRIVATE PROPERTY SNOW REMOVAL
Sidewalks are a critical part of our transportation system. Many people rely on sidewalks to get to school, work and play. Please remember, snowy sidewalks will trap people using wheelchairs and will slow down emergency responders.
To provide safe sidewalks for pedestrians, the owner or occupant of the property immediately adjacent to a public sidewalk is responsible for the removal of any snow or ice that accumulates on the sidewalk. Property owners, without notice, are required to remove snow and ice per 260-5 of the Village of Denmark's Municipal Code.
HELP YOUR NEIGHBORS
The village would like to encourage everyone to be a good neighbor. Think about neighbors and friends who do not have the ability to shovel snow from public sidewalks, their walkways, fire hydrants and driveways. Let neighbors know ahead of time if you are willing to help. Check with these neighbors after a storm to be sure they are okay and to ask if they need assistance.
SIDEWALK SHOVELING COMPLAINTS
Complaints regarding un-shoveled sidewalks should be directed to the Village Hall at (920) 863-6400. Once a complaint is received, the village will investigate the complaint. If the property is in violation of the snow and ice removal ordinances, the village will clear the sidewalk at the property owner's expense.
